Construction of $(n,r)$-arcs in $\mathrm{PG}(2,q)$

Michael Braun, Axel Kohnert and Alfred Wassermann

Vol. 1 (2005), No. 1, 133–141
Abstract

We construct new (n,r)-arcs in PG(2,q) by prescribing a group of automorphisms and solving the resulting Diophantine linear system with lattice point enumeration. We can improve the known lower bounds for q = 11,13,16,17,19 and give the first example of a double blocking set of size n in PG(2,p) with n < 3p and p prime.
