Tigran is a bitboard engine and applies kindergarten bitboards to determine sliding piece attacks. The search is PVS alpha-beta with transposition table, null move pruning and late move reductions inside an iterative deepening framework. Beside the dominating material term, the basic evaluation considers king safety, mobility and pawn structure.
