From the introduction: The following original results are obtained in this thesis: (1) a generalization of Kramer-Mesner matrices and Plesken matrices to group-invariant incidence functions; (2) a construction of a 3-design over GF\((q)\); (3) a construction of a point-cyclic spread of lines in the projective geometry PG\((9,2)\); (4) some improvements of bounds for the minimal distance of linear codes.
