This is my personal collection of (pointers to) information about computer chess programming. I intend to add more information in the future.
- Reference Material
- Programming Techniques
- Endgame databases, see A guide to Endgames Tablebase.
- Ken Thompson ([email protected]) has distributed three volumes on CD ROM with a number of 5 piece endgame databases. They seem no longer to be available. There are some commercial distributions of the same CD ROMs, but I have no pointers at the moment.
- Steven Edwards is creating a series of endgame databases. They are available from ftp://darkside.its-s.tudelft.nl/Crafty/TB/.
- Malinov’s endgame tablebases are available from http://www.chesslib.no/Nalimov.htm
