Since the late 50s, at Kronrod's [[Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics]], Georgy Adelson-Velsky worked along with Kronrod, [[Alexander Brudno]], [ Mikhail Bongard], Evgenii Landis, [ Nikolay Konstantinov], [[Vladimir Arlazarov]] et al. on heuristic and game programming, where they elaborated on the foundations of computer chess. Since [[Timeline#19631913|19631961]] <ref>[ История компьютерных игр. Виртуальный компьютерный музей. Англо-Русский компьютерный словарь. Вычисления в докомпьютерную эпоху. Технологии.

Later he advised the team that created the chess program [[Kaissa]] at [[Institute of Control Sciences|Moscow’s Institute for Control Science]]"</ref>. At the end of 1966 a [[Stanford-ITEP Match|four game match]] began between the [[Kotok-McCarthy-Program]], running on a [[IBM 7090]] computer, and the [[ITEP Chess Program]] on a Soviet [[M-2]] <ref>[ The Fast Universal Digital Computer M-2] from the [[Russian Virtual Computer Museum20]]</ref> computer. The match played over nine months was won 3-1 by the ITEP program. In 1971, along with [[Mikhail Donskoy]] and [[Vladimir Arlazarov]], Georgy Adelson-Velsky became primary author of [[Kaissa]], winner of the [[WCCC 1974|first computer chess championship]] 1974 in Stockholm.

Georgy Adelson-Velsky - one of the first Soviet programmers (together with [[Alexander Kronrod]], [[Alexander Brudno]], [[Mathematician#Landis|Evgenii Landis]] and others). He was occupied by the programs, connected with [ nuclear physics] at [[Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics|ITEP]], where he devised many algorithms which became classical. Especially the equilibrium binary trees, which in the entire world are called [ AVL trees] after the names of the authors - Adelson-Velsky and Landis. After short-term teaching at [[Moscow State University|MGU]] he worked at IPU and VNIISI (All-Union Scientific Research Institute of Sanitary Testing) on discrete algorithms, [ network planning] and [[Artificial Intelligence|artificial intelligence]]. He now lives in Israel and works at [ Technion] on [ NP problems of complete tasks].

[[Timeline#1963|1963]] (1961) - beginning of the works on the first Soviet chess program in the [[Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics]] (ITEP) in the laboratory under [[Alexander Kronrod|Alexander Kronrod's]] management. The first authors - Georgy Adelson-Velsky, [[Vladimir Arlazarov]], [[Alexander Bitman]], [[Alexander Zhivotovsky]], [[Anatoly Uskov]], A. Leman, M. Rozenfeld.
[[Timeline#1967|1967]] - first international match of chess programs. Competed the program ITEP and the program of [[Stanford University]], made under the management [[John McCarthy]]. McCarthy is famous fact that in 1952 on the beach in San Diego together with [[Alan Turing]] devised the word combination of "Artificial Intelligence", and fact that he is the author of the language Lisp - the first programming language, specially created for the tasks in the problems of artificial intelligence. Regulations of the [[Stanford-ITEP Match|match]] - four games. From the side of Stanford played one and the same version, from the ITEP side - two, which were being distinguished by the depth of search. Moves were transferred by the telegraph once a week (this to those- that times from "yadernogo" institute!). Match continued entire year and ended with the score the 3:1 in favor of ITEP.
[[Timeline#1969|1969]] (1968) - a [ letter ] in support of mathematician [ Esenin-Volpin] (son of [ poet]) and his incorrect psychiatric confinement, among others signed by [[Alexander Kronrod]] and Georgy Adelson-Velsky. As a result, the laboratory was disbanded and its major portion under [[Vladimir Arlazarov|Vladimir Arlazarov's]] management, but without Kronrod, after a certain time he settled in [[Institute of Control Sciences]] (ICF).
[[Timeline#1970|1970]] - the mechanic mathematical department of [[Moscow State University|MGU]] finished the entire group of the students of [[Alexander Kronrod]] and Georgy Adelson-Velsky, that was being occupied in the famous seminar for discrete algorithms. Sums of the seminar:
