How can mathematics relate to chess. Some people say that there is a lot of mathematics in chess; people have a false assumption that Chess is as mathematical. But, when I study chess these days, I do not see any formulation or algorithm that is mathematical at all.

Unless someone comes out with something mathematical in chess, I will not agree that chess is mathematical.

 

What is your take on this?
