Abstract

In this paper, we show that the basic necessary condition for the existence of a (k; 0, 2)-set in an S(2, 4, v) is also sufficient. It solves a problem posed by de Resmini [6] and we also prove some asymptotic results concerning the existence of hyperovals in Steiner systems with large block size. The results are generally applicable to designs with maximal arcs. © Birkhäuser Verlag, Basel, 2003.
