The construction of many families of combinatorial objects remains a challenging problem. A t-restriction is an array where a predicate is satisfied for every t columns; an example is a perfect hash family (PHF). The composition of a PHF and any t-restriction satisfying predicate P yields another t-restriction also satisfying P with more columns than the original t-restriction had. This thesis concerns three approaches in determining the smallest size of PHFs.
