I had to google the number in order to understand what this is about. It's this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coppersmi ... _algorithm

It's a matrix multiplication algorithm with time complexity O(n^2.3728639).

Strangely, the Wikipedia article just lists the complexity improvements made over the years, but doesn't describe the algorithm itself even a little.

Worth noting: the person who made the improvement mentioned in the comic is Fran├žois Le Gall, who looks like this:

The comic shows a woman.

Maybe Virginia Vassilevska Williams, who got it down to the first number in the comic in 2010? I don't see any pictures of her wearing glasses, though, and her hair's not that gray.
