Chess and Mathematics 2008


Workshop Dresden, 21st - 23rd November 2008

There are various relations between chess and mathematics. Starting with the legend of the wheat corn, the analysis of endgames with methods of multi-linear algebra to the question of objectively evaluating tournament results. Therefore we would like to organize a workshop in connection with the chess Olympiad a workshop on the "state of the art" of chess and mathematics at TU Dresden.
