Computer Security $0 0 COVID-19 Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, a virus closely related to the SARS virus. The disease is the cause of the 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak.$0 4
COVID-19 Dataset Clearinghouse There is an abundance of COVID-19 related data available. This data will be indispensable for the urgent tasks of understanding and preventing the spread of the virus as well as developing treatments. Moreover, there are a myriad of other e.g. economic, political, and mental health problems which have resulted from the pandemic. An organized collection of high-quality, clean, and accessible data sets will be indispensable in addressing these and many other issues. $0 1 Cryptography$0 0
Distributed Computing $0 1 Fermat's Last Theorem In number theory, Fermat's Last Theorem (sometimes called Fermat's conjecture, especially in older texts) states that no three positive integers a, b, and c satisfy the equation$a^{n} + b^{n} = c^{n}$for any integer value of n greater than 2.

IMO 2009 Q6 Let $a_1, a_2, \ldots, a_n$ be distinct positive integers and let M be a set of $n-1$ positive integers not containing $s = a_1 +a_2 +\ldots+a_n$. A grasshopper is to jump along the real axis, starting at the point 0 and making n jumps to the right with lengths $a_1, a_2, \ldots , a_n$ in some order. Prove that the order can be chosen in such a way that the grasshopper never lands on any point in M.
