Driving innovations in manufacturing: Open Access research from DMEM

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by Strathclyde's Department of Design, Manufacture & Engineering Management (DMEM).

Centred on the vision of 'Delivering Total Engineering', DMEM is a centre for excellence in the processes, systems and technologies needed to support and enable engineering from concept to remanufacture. From user-centred design to sustainable design, from manufacturing operations to remanufacturing, from advanced materials research to systems engineering.

Abstract

We present bounds concerning the number of Hartmanis partitions of a finite set. An application of these inequalities improves the known asymptotic lower bound on the number of linear spaces on n points. We also present an upper bound for a certain class of these partitions which bounds the number of Steiner triple and quadruple systems.
