Home * Engines * Abulafia

an UCI compliant experimental open source chess engine by Nicu Ionita written in Haskell, and predecessor of Barbarossa [1]. Abulafia uses magic bitboards [2] to determine sliding piece attacks, and monad transformers [3] [4] in continuation passing style to control the search.
