Book summary

The mathematics of tournament design are surprisingly subtle, and this book, an extensively revised version of Ellis Horwood's popular Combinatorial Designs: Construction Methods, provides a thorough introduction. It includes a new chapter on league schedules, which discusses round robin tournaments, venue sequences, and carry-over effects. It also discusses balanced tournament designs, double schedules, and bridge and whist tournament design. Readable and authoritative, the book emphasizes throughout the historical development of the material and includes numerous examples and exercises giving detailed constructions. [via]
