Abstract

The minimum number of blocks having maximum size precisely five that is required to cover, exactly once, all pairs of elements from a set of cardinality $v$ is denoted by $g^{(5)}_1(v)$. As a prelude to further work, we give the values of $g^{(5)}_1(v)$ for $v\le 25$, and construct all designs which attain this bound.
