    Using graph theoretical technique, we present a construction of a (30, 2, 29, 14)-relative difference set fixed by inversion in the smallest finite simple group-the alternating group A(5). To our knowledge this is the first example known of relative difference sets in the finite simple groups with a non-trivial forbidden subgroup. A connection is then established between some relative difference sets fixed by inversion and certain antipodal distance-regular Cayley graphs. With the connection, several families of antipodal distance-regular Cayley graphs which are coverings of complete graphs are presented. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
