Re: Correspondence Chess1. e4 c5 In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #152 20131030 07:42:23

What is the computer way? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

Re: Correspondence ChessIt uses a tree and alpha beta pruning. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Correspondence ChessI meant is there a way to render the board on the computer rather than the real board and pieces? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?'

Re: Correspondence ChessOf course, as a 8 x 8 array. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #160 20131031 00:11:26
Re: Correspondence ChessThen why are you using the board and pieces? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #161 20131031 00:17:01
Re: Correspondence ChessBecause I do not have an 8 x 8 array. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Correspondence ChessDo you have a board? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #163 20131031 02:03:06
Re: Correspondence ChessYes, I have one wood board. Got it when I was very young. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

That would be your maternal granpa, right?

Re: Correspondence ChessThat is correct. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
