a free open source chess engine released under the MIT license written by Phokham Nonava in Java and C++. The Java Edition supports UCI through the Java Chess Protocol Interface [1] and runs on all available Java 7 platforms including Windows, OS X and Linux. Pulse is a simple chess engine with didactic intentions in mind. The source code should be easy to read, so that new developers can learn, how to build a chess engine.
