Abstract: Let p be an odd prime. We derive new necessary conditions for the existence of 2  (ν, k, λ) designs where the block intersection sizes s1, s2, ..., sn satisfy s1 ≡ s2 ≡ ... ≡ sn (mod p). The method is to define a nondegenerate scalar product on a 2mdimensional vector space and to construct an mdimensional totally singular subspace. This result is a generalization to nonsymmetric designs of the BruckRyserChowla theorem. © 1988.
