Mark Levene [1]

Mark Levene,
a British computer scientist and professor of computer science at the Depatrment of Computer Science and Information Systems, Birkbeck College, University of London. His research interests include data mining, relational database theory, complex systems, human dynamics, heuristic game playing and computer chess.

Move Choices

Along with Judit Bar-Ilan, Mark Levene published on move choices of chess engines in particular of Fritz and Junior [2], and further compared typical opening move choices made by humans and engines using nonparametric association measures, a weighted version of Spearman's rank correlation coefficients, and the Jensen-Shannon divergence (JSD) nonparametric measure, which allows to measure the similarity between two distributions [3].

Modulo Bitboards

Along with Trevor Fenner, Mark Levene published various papers on the topic of computer chess. While their 2008 paper Move Generation with Perfect Hashing Functions introducing Congruent Modulo Bitboards [4] provides insights in congruent modular arithmetic, their final conclusion in comparison with Hashing Dictionaries, Rotated Bitboards and Magic Bitboards was criticized due to the obvious comparison with Kindergarten Bitboards [5].
