He has, together with Frank Lamprecht, written a book on the subject: “Fundamental Chess Endgames” in addition to other contributions such as his column on the website ChessCafe as well as in ChessBase Magazine. Müller's ChessBase-DVDs about endgames in Fritztrainer-Format are bestsellers. The PhD in mathematics lives in Hamburg, where he has also been hunting down points for the HSK in the Bundesliga for many years.

Mais qu'est-ce que c'est? le A est pour adelbert évidemment; c'est le nom du système source.
Quant au Français,c'est la langue de fondation de la FIDE, qu'il faut quand même respecter.

Det var det dummaste jag har hört på mycket länge! Det finns inget "officiellt" språk för schack. Att vara så självgod som föregående talare ger uttryck för är en mycket oangenäm egenskap som jag verkligen hoppas inte är något som delas av fler fransmän.

Cette finale est très instructive; elle nous montre que l'organisation des échecs ne peut pas faire abstraction du mat provoqué par Rf3 pour sa langue de fonctionnement; autrement dit, ce sont les statuts fondateurs de la FIDE, renouvelés à Nice 1974 qui doivent déterminer la langue de la notation et de communication adoptée par les joueurs. Les fantaisies de quelques éditeurs privés qui refusent de reconnaître la langue de la FIDE, le français les déqualifie de donner un enseignement adéquat des échecs, non plus qu'une représentation adéquate de l'actualité échiquéenne. si Chess base veut être une référence et utiliser les outils visuels développés en français, il devra ajouter le français à sa langue de publication.
