Home * Engines * Typhoon

an open source chess engine by Scott Gasch, as successor of Monsoon also written in C and compliant to the Chess Engine Communication Protocol. While running on a multi-processor machine, Typhoon uses a tree splitting algorithm somewhat similar to principal variation splitting to search in parallel with multiple threads. Splitting occurs after the first move has been searched at PV-nodes or if the first N moves at All-nodes [1] [2].

Like its predecessor Monsoon, Typhoon supports Nalimov Tablebases and has various simple interior node recognizers for wrong color bishop endgames and trivially won KPK games. These recognizers are based on Thorsten Greiner's program Amy [3] [4].
