title = "Distributive block structures and their automorphisms",

abstract = "The experimental units in a statistical experiment are frequently grouped into blocks in one or more ways. When the different families of blocks fit together in a well-behaved way we have a distributive block structure. We show that the orbits of the automorphism group of a distributive block structure on pairs of experimental units are precisely the sets which the combinatorial structure leads one to expect. Possible generalizations of this result are discussed.",
