Among the simplest combinatorial designs, triple systems are a natural generalization of graphs and have connections with geometry, algebra, group theory, finite fields, and cyclotomy. Applications of triple systems are found in coding theory, cryptography, computer science, and statistics. In many cases, triple systems provide the prototype for deep results in combinatorial design theory, and a number of important results were first understood in the context of triple systems and then generalized. This book attempts to ...
