The Chess Programming Wiki is a repository of information about programming computers to play chess. Our goal is to provide a reference for every aspect of chess-programming, information about programmers, researcher and engines. You'll find different ways to implement LMR and bitboard stuff like best magics for most dense magic bitboard tables. For didactic purposes the CPW-Engine has been developed by some wiki members.

The page was first hosted on Wikispaces. Due to that site closure [1] [2], it moved to its present new host at www.chessprogramming.org. A few former pages, in particular people and engine pages, were lost (because of converting formats between sites), but most programming stuff was successfully relocated [3]. You will notice updating progress almost daily.
