title = "Relations among partitions",

abstract = "Combinatorialists often consider a balanced incomplete-block design to consist of a set of points, a set of blocks, and an incidence relation between them which satisfies certain conditions. To a statistician, such a design is a set of experimental units with two partitions, one into blocks and the other into treatments: it is the relation between these two partitions which gives the design its properties. The most common binary relations between partitions that occur in statistics are refinement, orthogonality and balance. When there are more than two partitions, the binary relations may not suffice to give all the properties of the system. I shall survey work in this area, including designs such as double Youden rectangles.",
