Home * People * John Philip FishburnJohn Philip Fishburn,an American computer scientist and electrical engineer from the Bell Laboratories. He made his Ph.D. Thesis in 1981 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison about Distributed Algorithms including the Parallelization of Alpha-Beta under the supervision of Raphael Finkel. The routine

Calphabetain his thesis^{[1]}is mentioned by Tony Marsland as base of a Principal Variation Search implementation^{[2]}. In his 1983 paperAnother optimization of alpha-beta search, Fishburn introduced Fail-Soft Alpha-Beta^{[3]}^{[4]}.## Selected Publications
