The latter result provides the existence of a simple 5- 24 12 6m design for m 24 32 40 48 56 64 72 80 112 120 128 136 144 152 160 168 200 208 216 224 232 240 248 and 256. 1 Introduction A t- v k A design D is a pair of a set X of v points and a collection B of k-subsets of X called blocks such that every t-subset of X is contained in exactly A blocks. We often denote the design D by X B . A design with no repeated block is called simple. All designs in this note are simple. A Steiner system S t k v is a t- v k A design with A 1. Two t- v k A designs with the same point set are said to be disjoint if they have no blocks in common. Two t- v k A designs are isomorphic if there is a bijection between their point sets that maps the blocks of the first design into the blocks of the second design. An automorphism of a t- v k A design D is any isomorphism of the design with itself and the set consisting of all automorphisms of D is called the automorphism group Aut D of D. The well-known Steiner system S 5 8 24 and a 5- 24 12 48 design are constructed by taking as blocks the supports of codewords of weights 8 and 12 in the extended Go-lay 24 12 8 code respectively. It is well known that there is a unique Steiner system S 5 8 24 up to isomorphism 8 and there is a unique 5- 24 12 48 design having even THE ELECTRONIC JOURNAL OF .
