Heureka [1]

a chess program by Gerold Fischer which played the WMCCC 1996 in Jakarta. Heureka was further announced to participate the WMCCC 1997 in Paris [2], when Fischer withdrew in favour to the late registered MChess, as suggested by Fischer's partner and Goliath author Michael Borgstädt [3] . After rumours on Heureka's origins appeared [4], Borgstädt clarified Goliath and Heureka were different programs, possibly sharing ideas but no source code [5].

Heureka, in English the /h/ is dropped for Eureka, is an interjection used to celebrate a discovery, a transliteration of a word attributed to Archimedes [6].
