Boolean Matrix Multiplication is one of the most fundamental problems in computer science. Two lines of theoretical research have been explored to solve this problem: algebraic algorithms, exploiting a ring structure and clever cancellations, and combinatorial algorithms, exploiting combinatorial redundances arising from representing matrices as graphs, often invoking lookup tables. In this talk I will summarize the findings of the "combinatorial" line of research, with particular focus on the recent algorithm by Timothy Chan .
