The news of the Google Quantum supremacy claim has leaked in early October but it was officially published in Nature on Oct 23rd:
"Quantum supremacy using a programmable superconducting processor" https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-019-1666-5

However, IBM had a rebuttal ready and submitted to the ArXiv on the 21 of Oct that was published on 22 Oct just in time:
"Leveraging Secondary Storage to Simulate Deep 54-qubit Sycamore Circuits" https://arxiv.org/abs/1910.09534

We will discuss these two papers and relevant supporting material.
