# Topic: Algebraic notation

###### In the News (Sun 26 May 13)

 Tutorial on Chess Notation Algebraic is the "official" notation used in tournaments and in all modern books, and it is kind of a cross between descriptive and coordinate. Since algebraic notation and coordinate notation are closely related, it was decided to keep it the same, and use the _arrival square_ of the pawn, and not the square the captured pawn stood on. Since errors in notation are especially unwanted in postal chess due to the long response times, where a single error can take a week to correct by the time the original player is informed of the error and a reply is sent back to correct the error, this notation is well-suited for postal chess. chess.eusa.ed.ac.uk /Chess/Rules/notation.html   (2383 words)

 Algebraic chess notation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Algebraic chess notation is the method used today by all competition chess organizations and most books, magazines, and newspapers to record and describe the play of chess games. Notations from algebraic notation are frequently used in long algebraic notation in such constructions as "Nb1-c3" or "Rd3xd7". In international correspondence chess the use of algebraic notation may cause confusion, since different languages have different names (and therefore different initials) for the pieces; hence the standard for transmitting moves in this form of chess is ICCF numeric notation. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Algebraic_chess_notation   (1043 words)

 Descriptive chess notation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Descriptive chess notation, or just descriptive notation is a notation for recording chess games, and at one time was the most popular notation for doing so. It has been superseded by abbreviated algebraic notation, but is still important for understanding older chess books. In Spanish descriptive notation the hypen is not needed, as the rank serves as separator. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Descriptive_chess_notation   (749 words)

 Chess Guide > Algebraic Notation Algebraic chess notation is the method used today by all competition chess organizations and most books, magazines, and newspapers to record and describe the play of chess games. It replaced descriptive chess notation, although the older notation can still be found in older literature. In full algebraic notation, moves are simply written as the beginning position, a dash ("-"), and the ending position. www.chess.freegames.eu.com /rules/notations/algebraic.html   (836 words)

 Algebraic Chess Notation - www.indepthinfo.com The main advantage of algebraic notation is that every space on the chess board has one, and only one, absolute name. In algebraic notation, the letter is always first and the number last. Algebraic notation, then, is much more precise than descriptive notation in labelling moves. www.indepthinfo.com /chess-notation/algebraic-notation.shtml   (484 words)

 #[]#[] Chess Notation #[]#[] Algebraic notation is the current standard and has been the official FIDE notation starting in 1981. Algebraic is much easier to read then the more laborous descriptive notation, and is also much easier to record quickly and accurately while playing. In Algebraic notation, everything is counted from the white's queen's rook's square, which is the lower left corner of the board. www.finitechess.com /notation.htm   (437 words)

 The Concepts and Confusions of Prefix, Infix, Postfix and Fully Functional Notations The reason for the misconception that lisp notations are “prefix” is because the “head” appears as the first element in the enclosed parenthesis. Such use of the term “prefix” is a confusion engenderer because the significance of the term lies in algebraic notation systems that involves the concept of operators. The reason the name Algebraic Notation is used because when the science of algebra was young, around 1700s mathematicians are dealing with equations using symbols like “+ × =” written out similar to the way we use them today. xahlee.org /UnixResource_dir/writ/notations.html   (2437 words)

 Chess Guide > Descriptive Notation Descriptive Chess Notation is a notation for recording chess games, and at one time was the most popular notation for doing so. From White's perspective, the square notated as "e4" in algebraic notation is described as "K4" in descriptive notation. Algebraic notation has the advantages of representing the same moves with fewer characters (on average), and using the same representation for the same location regardless of player. www.chess.freegames.eu.com /rules/notations/descriptive.html   (448 words)

 Jeremy's Web Site -- Notation Algebraic notation is a relatively new notation compared to some of the other ways of documenting a chess game. Its really a very simple notation and it only takes a little bit of practice to become good at reading it and writing it is a snap with a little bit of practice as well. Algebraic notation assigns each of these squares a name that it is identified by so that you are able to tell where a particular piece is moving to. www.geocities.com /Athens/Delphi/6551/notation.htm   (1501 words)

 Mark Lowery's Exciting World of Chess - Notation The most common notation type you will encounter and the one most frequently in use in the modern chess world is English Algebraic, (note: the United States Chess Federation refers to this system as Algebraic Notation, abbreviated AN), although you will encounter several others as well and should become familiar with them. English Algebraic notation is based upon assigning numbers to the 8 ranks (rows) and lower case letters to the 8 files (columns) on the board. In English Algebraic notation no letter is used for the pawns, which instead generally are referred to simply by the file letter from which the pawn is advanced. www.markalowery.net /Chess/Notation/notation.html   (1886 words)

 Algebraic Notation for Chess   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17) Algebraic notation is a common method of recording chess moves. Each square on the board has a name, the first character is a letter from a-h, denoting the file, and the second character a digit from 1-8 denoting the rank. It is important to note that the names of the squares are the same for white and fl, an important distinction from the old style of notation. home.comcast.net /~sresnick2/notation.html   (454 words)

 Algebraic notation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17) The rules for calculating truth functions are essentially algebraic in nature, and this is what allows their easy programming (as in the program PLN2 which you can use to find the truth value of any expression). It should be noted that algebraic notation as used here is based on a mod-2 arithmetic and is not the same as Boolean algebra. The key distinction is that in Boolean algebra the rule is that 1+1=1 while in mod 2 arithmetic it is that 1+1=0. www.internetlogic.org /slip20.htm   (164 words)

 Chessville - Misc. - Codes, etc. - Notation - Algebraic In what follows, I will describe the most commonly used form of algebraic, which is sometimes referred to as “simple algebraic notation,” or just plain "algebraic notation," or even the parsimonious "algebraic." Then I'll mention a couple of other less-commonly used forms of algebraic notation, just in case you ever come across them. One of the advantages of figurine algebraic notation is that it avoids the problem of different languages using different letters for some of the pieces in regular algebraic. Figurine algebraic is easy enough to follow and it shoulhouldn't present you with any special problems. www.chessville.com /misc/misc_codes_notation_algebraic.htm   (949 words)

 [No title] Syncopated algebra can be found in the works of later western Arabs, Diophantus and some of the later European writers down to about the seventeenth century (with the exception of Viète and Oughtred). Symbolic algebra is the form employed by Viète, Oughtred (1574-1660), the Hindus, and the Europeans since the middle of the seventeenth century (Nesselmann, cited in [2, p.

 [No title] Algebraic Notation Made Easy by Chuck Smith ------------------------------------------- Algebraic notation is used almost exclusively in chess literature. Algebraic notation labels each square on the board, based on its file and rank. In English language notation, each piece except pawns is given an initial: King: K Queen: Q Rook: R Bishop: B Knight: N Notice that the knight's initial is N, so as not to cause confusion with the king. www.chess-iecc.org /algnot.txt   (608 words)

 Chess Notation The Algebraic chess notation used on my Chess page is the method used today by all chess organizations and most books, magazines, and newspapers to record and describe the moves in chess games. The form most commonly used is also known as abbreviated (or short) algebraic notation (SAN) to distinguish it from the expanded (or long) algebraic notation variant (LAN) commonly used by chess programs. Short-hand notations are sometimes used to comment on moves, primarily as a diagnostic or learning tool. mysite.verizon.net /dfairlie/chessnotation.html   (1221 words)

Last check: 2007-10-17) The analysis of the interviews focused on the ways in which students used and interpreted algebraic notation within the contexts of the tasks. In general, it was found that the participants, while comfortable with notation, lacked sufficient insight into algebraic notation to take full advantage of its potential. That is, the participants seemed able to apply a notational approach to familiar or routine tasks but lacked the tendency and skill to apply a notational approach to a less familiar situation or to interpret notational expressions within that situation. math.boisestate.edu /colloquia/kinzel.html   (165 words)

 Chess Notation To notate a piece moving on the chessboard first write the piece identifier and then the square the piece is moving to. The ranks are labeled 1 through 8 but unlike Algebraic Notation, the labeling is with respect to the player. Descriptive Notation does have a piece identifier for a Pawn and it is what you probably thought it would be, a P.

 A brief history of algebraic notation School Science and Mathematics - Find Articles Exploration of the historical development of algebraic notation shows mathematics to be a creation of individuals from all parts of the world. Learning more about the history of algebraic notation or doing problems using rhetorical or syncopated algebra can give students a different perspective on the modern notation and so broaden their understanding and appreciation of mathematics. This article traces the three major stages of development of algebraic notation, from the earliest stage of rhetorical, or prose, algebra to the intermediate stage of syncopated algebra and, finally, to symbolic algebra (Nelson, 1993). findarticles.com /p/articles/mi_qa3667/is_200005/ai_n8885415   (894 words)

 The Summation Sign It is necessary to enhance the language of algebra with an additional notational system in order to efficiently write some of the expressions which will be encountered in the next chapter on statistics. The notational scheme provides a means of representing both a large number of variables and the summation of an algebraic expression. Sometimes if the summation notation is used in an expression and the expression must be written a number of times, as in a proof, then a shorthand notation for the shorthand notation is employed. www.psychstat.missouristate.edu /introbook/sbk12m.htm   (999 words)

 Reverse Polish Notation Polish notation was described in the 1920s by Polish mathematician Jan Lukasiewicz as a logical system for the specification of mathematical equations without parentheses. Equation with parenthesis (1 + 2) * 3 Prefix notation * 3 + 1 2 or * + 1 2 3 Postfix notation 1 2 + 3 * or 3 1 2 + * Try that with a calculator that uses algebraic notation, and chances are you will get a different answer every time if you don't get lost first. users.ece.gatech.edu /~mleach/revpol   (1173 words)
