Pitrat's Chess Program

In the 70s, Jacques Pitrat worked on a experimental chess program that tried to limit the width of the tree, so that it can increase its depth. The idea is to generate a node if and only if there is a reason to do so. The program performs a very sophisticated analysis of the given position, to generate a set of plans. Each plan consists of a sequence of moves considered by the search.
