Abstract

In this paper we proceed in the way indicated by R. M. Wilson for obtaining simple difference families from finite fields [28]. We present a theorem which includes as corollaries all the known direct techniques based on Galois fields, and provides a very effective method for constructing a lot of new difference families and also new optimal optical orthogonal codes. By means of our construction—just to give an idea of its power—it has been established that the only primes p<10^5 for which the existence of a cyclic S(2, 9,p) design is undecided are 433 and 1009. Moreover we have considerably improved the lower bound on the minimum v for which an S(2, 15,v) design exists.
