Description:
Retrograde problems in Chess require to deduce information about the past from a given position. Examples include determining the last move, deciding whether a promotion took place earlier, or deducing the colour of an invisible piece.

The aim of this project is to develop algorithms and a system for several classes of retrograde problems in Chess.

If successful, this research could be published in a high-profile conference or journal.
