A note on BIB designs with nested rows and columns

James A. MacDougall, Gary L. Mullen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In [1] Aggarwal & Arasu devised a construction for balanced incomplete block designs having nested rows and columns. Their construction uses finite fields and depends on the existence of primitive elements having certain properties. They conjectured that such primitive elements always exist. The purpose of this short note is to point out that their conjecture is true.
