Lyudmil Tsvetkov,
a Bulgarian former diplomat [1], chess player [2] and computer chess expert and author. In 2010, Lyudmil Tsvetkov published a Little Chess Evaluation Compendium elaborating on quantitative evaluation features in chess [3], in 2012 an Addendum, both hosted by Thomas Mayer.

Not a chess programmer himself, Lyudmil contributed in CCC and kept developers and test departments busy in pointing out certain weaknesses of engines with the proposal of pattern and concrete weights concerning evaluation, often controversial discussed with non-orthogonality as essence of his critics, as summarized by Louis Zulli [4].
