Subject: Piece Values in the Endgame

Author: GuyHaworth

When I was taught chess, pre-history now, the piece values were:

Pawn = 1 (without loss of generality)
Bishop = Knight = 3
Rook = 5
Queen = 10.

These figures may not be 'current thinking' so feel free to correct me there.

However, my question is this.  If piece-values are assumed to be dependent only
on the force on the board, what values should they be given for various forces
in the endgame?
