Book creation papers

Post by Robert Pope » Thu Apr 18, 2019 6:59 pm

I was wondering if anyone could point me to some good papers about opening book creation/development. I think I want to create and implement an opening book database in Abbess that is more than lines chosen at random from a text file. Maybe with minimaxing scores like Brainfish, as well as usage statistics.

I thought I saw a couple things posted last year, but I'm not really finding anything current.

See Thomas Linke's thesis on dropout expansion (used in Checkers with good results):

Some talkchess discussion from a few years back:
