# The spectrum of ?-resolvable designs with block size four

Abstact: An α-resolvable BIBD is a BIBD with the property that the blocks can be partitioned into disjoint classes such that every class contains each point of the design exactly α times. In this paper, we show that the necessary conditions for the existence of α-resolvable designs with block size four are sufficient, with the exception of (α, ν, λ) = (2, 10, 2). © 2000 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
