Abstract

We describe a construction of primitive 2-designs and strongly regular graphs from the simple groups 𝐿 ( 3 , 5 ) , π‘ˆ ( 5 , 2 ) , and 𝑆 ( 6 , 2 ) . The designs and the graphs are constructed by defining incidence structures on conjugacy classes of maximal subgroups of 𝐿 ( 3 , 5 ) , π‘ˆ ( 5 , 2 ) , and 𝑆 ( 6 , 2 ) . In addition, from the group 𝑆 ( 6 , 2 ) , we construct 2-designs with parameters ( 2 8 , 4 , 4 ) and ( 2 8 , 4 , 1 ) having the full automorphism group isomorphic to π‘ˆ ( 3 , 3 ) ∢ 𝑍 2 .
