Bagatur,
a free open source chess program under the Eclipse Public License [1] written in Java by Krasimir Topchiyski from Bulgaria. The project has started around year 2000. The engine is quite strong, for example the ELO of version 1.4d is about 2500 based on CCRL [2] . The open source project is hosted at GitHub [3] , where one can find everything relevant like downloads and java source code of the program. Under Windows and Linux the program hasn't its own user interface and uses arbitrary UCI user interfaces like Arena. Under Android there is a game called Chess Art For Kids [4] with an own GUI, which incorporates Bagatur as a chess engine.

The programming code is structured in multiple Java modules / APIs, which could be used separately, including modules for experiments with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. More details could be found inside the readme files of each sub-project of the programming code [5]. Here are some of the algorithms and heuristics applied in Bagatur:
