Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


In 2003, the Solution for the 5x5 Go board was published in this journal. The current article presents the game-theoretic values for rectangular boards up to a surface of 30 intersections a under Chinese rules. The result was achieved by improving the alpha beta-based solver MIGOS. Moreover, the article identities errors in published human Solutions by comparing them with our computer solutions.
