    Sample pooling or group testing means a test that tells about a small group of people (or group of samples) whether at least one  of  them  is  infected.  It  is  particularly  efficient when  the  infection  rate  is  low,  because  one  negative  test result implies that  none of  the  people  in  the group are infected. Beyond the pure mathematical  motivations and approaches, we also focus on real-life
    applications, especially in the current epidemic.
