Invitation to Gordian Knot — Threads '18 (IIIT Hyderabad)

Gordian Knot is a Project Euler styled contest that challenges you to untangle the intricate enigmas of mathematics. Feel free to deploy your programming skills to make your life easy. Variety of problem set is slightly different from typical Project Euler styled contests, so we hope that you find the problem set crisp and enjoyable :slight_smile:

Gordian Knot belongs to same chain of technical events called Threads, which recently organized : Codecraft (on codeforces) & Fool’s programming (on codechef). You can follow Threads blog on Quora too, on which we will be adding more articles soon. Presently, we have a unique system design contest called ‘SysCraft’ running and ‘Kings of Machine Learning’ lined up too.
