Home * Engines * QuTeChess

an experimental free open source chess program under the GNU General Public License written by Aleš Zamuda, available from a SourceForge SVN repository [1]. As its name suggests, QuTeChess is written in C++ using the Qt4.7 cross-platform application and UI framework [2] (using QTime, QThread). QuTeChess supports the UCI protocol, and uses bitboards as internal board representation and a plain alpha-beta search. It contains a MakeMove class, which implements an idiosyncratic Parallel Search, instantiating a new thread in its makeMove function [3]. The availability of changegenes.cpp [4] suggests QuTeChess' piece values were tuned by the genetic programming approach of differential evolution [5].
