On the enumeration of uniquely reducible double designs


A double $2$-$(v,k,2 \lambda)$ design is a design which is reducible into two $2$-$(v,k,\lambda)$ designs. It is called uniquely reducible if it has, up to equivalence, only one reduction. We present properties of uniquely reducible double designs which show that their total number can be determined if only the designs with non-trivial automorphisms are classified with respect to their automorphism group. As an application, after proving that a reducible $2$-$(21,5,2)$ design is uniquely reducible, we establish that the number of all reducible $2$-$(21,5,2)$ designs is $1 746 461 307$.
