2kn - Binomial(2k+1,2)
It is shown that every cyclic split system S defined
on an n-set with #S > 2kn - Binomial(2k+1, 2)
k <= (n-1)/2 always contains a subset of k+1 pairwise
incompatible splits provided one has min(k,n - (2k+1))
In addition, some related old and new conjectures are also discussed.
