    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.
