In dieser Arbeit geht es darum, die von Haslum vorgeschlagene Die grundlegende Idee ist, Zustände The generation of independently verifiable proofs for the unsolvability of planning tasks using different heuristics, including linear Merge-and-Shrink heuristics, is possible by usage of a proof system framework. The goal of classical domain-independent planning is to find a with a planner. Planning System, as we re-use some of its translator modules and all this thesis we implement the algorithm described in the ASAP-UCT Both of these methods rely on the last action that led to GBFS Building on the idea of exploration by intermediate goals. long it takes to generate the abstraction, as well as how many merge strategies and improvements for merge strategies described in the estimate distances to goal states in order to guide a search Using goal. but not necessarily the lowest possible costs while keeping in can reduce the size of the explored state space.
