Hn ) be a nonnegative vector satisfying h1 ≥ 0 and hi−1 − hi ≤ 1 (i = 2, 3, . . , n). Then H is the normalized row sum vector of a tournament matrix if and only if h1 + h2 + · · · + hk ≥ 0 (k = 1, 2, . . 12) with equality for k = n. The row sum vector of such a tournament matrix is equal to R = (r1 , r2 , . . , rn ) where ri = hi + (i − 1) (i = 1, 2, . . , n). ✷ Let p and n be positive integers. Instead of a round-robin tournament in which each of n teams x1 , x2 , . . , xn plays one game against every other team, we may also consider a round-robin tournament in which each team plays p games against every other team.

Choose a counterexample with m + n minimal, and for that m + n, with τ = r1 + r2 + · · · + rm minimal. l l ∗ Case 1: i=1 si = i=1 ri for some l with 0 < l < n. It is an immediate consequence that l l R1 = (r1 , . . , rm ) = (min{l, r1 }, . . , min{l, rm }) and S1 = (s1 , . . , sl ), we have S1 R1∗ , and for the vectors R2 = (r1 − r1 , . . rm − rm ), and S2 = (sl+1 , . . , sn ), we have S2 R2∗ . By minimality there exist a (0, 1)-matrix A1 with row sum vector R1 and column sum vector S1 , and a (0,1)-matrix A2 with row sum vector R2 and column sum vector S2 .
