Package at https://ctan.org/pkg/realhats, behind-the-scenes commentary at https://aperiodical.com/2019/03/realhats-writing-a-latex-package/

A blog entry about the O(n · log n) integer multiplication algorithm, much smaller than the actual paper: https://rjlipton.wordpress.com/2019/03/29/integer-multiplication-in-nlogn-time/
