Bruce Moreland's essays on Computer Chess Programming (2001)

Post by rafowell » Sun Apr 15, 2007 6:31 pm

I noticed Bruce Moreland's pages on Computer Chess Programming (2001) today

http://www.seanet.com/~brucemo/topics/topics.htm

According to the Google reverse directory search, it isn't cited
very much, so I thought I'd mention it here.

The populated topics covered are:

Min-Max Search
Alpha-Beta Search
Principal Variation Search
Quiescent Search
MVV/LVA Move Ordering
Static Exchange Evaluation
Collecting the Principal Variation
Iterative Deepening
Aspiration Windows
Contempt Factor
Zobrist Keys
Transposition Table
Repetition Detection
Null-Move Foward Pruning
Search Instability
0x88
Pondering

This is actually Bruce's programming page: http://www.brucemo.com/compchess/programming/index.htm

As you can see this page is more up-to-date. I guess the other page is obsolete.

Alessandro,

Add this on your list, a collection of Nicola Rizzuti (builder of Mizar chess engine). His chess programming collections are the best I've seen so far.
