EMI (Easy Installments)
  • Pay for your order in equal monthly installments (EMI), using any one of the payment options in the table below.
  • Your bank will convert the payment done using credit or debit cards into EMI in 3-4 working days.
  • For payments done using credit and debit cards, to make this a No Cost EMI offer, the interest amount will be discounted from the price of your order. Your card will be charged for the item price minus the discounted interest. The total amount you will pay to the bank (excluding GST) will be equal to the price of the item. The bank will charge GST on the interest amount. For payments done using Amazon Pay EMI, the price will not be discounted upfront. Instead, you will not be charged any interest for a No Cost EMI offer.

Product description

Review

"Heuristic Search is a very solid monograph and textbook on (not only heuristic) search. In its presentation it is always more formal than colloquial, it is precise and well structured. Due to its spiral approach it motivates reading it in its entirety." --Zentralblatt MATH 2012

"The authors have done an outstanding job putting together this book on artificial intelligence (AI) heuristic state space search. It comprehensively covers the subject from its basics to the most recent work and is a great introduction for beginners in this field." --BCS.org

"Heuristic search lies at the core of Artificial Intelligence and it provides the foundations for many different approaches in problem solving. This book provides a comprehensive yet deep description of the main algorithms in the field along with a very complete discussion of their main applications. Very well-written, it embellishes every algorithm with pseudo-code and technical studies of their theoretical performance." --Carlos Linares López, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid

"This is an introduction to artificial intelligence heuristic state space search. Authors Edelkamp (U. of Bremen, Germany) and Schrödl (a research scientist at Yahoo! Labs) seek to strike a balance between search algorithms and their theoretical analysis, on the one hand, and their efficient implementation and application to important real-world problems on the other, while covering the field comprehensively from well-known basic results to recent work in the state of the art. Prior knowledge of artificial intelligence is not assumed, but basic knowledge of algorithms, data structures, and calculus is expected. Proofs are included for formal rigor and to introduce proof techniques to the reader. They have organized the material into five sections: heuristic search primer, heuristic search under memory constraints, heuristic search under time constraints, heuristic search variants, and applications." --SciTech Book News

"This almost encyclopedic text is suitable for advanced courses in artificial intelligence and as a text and reference for developers, practitioners, students, and researchers in artificial intelligence, robotics, computational biology, and the decision sciences. The exposition is comparable to texts for a graduate-level or advanced undergraduate course in computer science, and prior exposure or coursework in advanced algorithms, computability, or artificial intelligence would help a great deal in understanding the material. Algorithms are described in pseudocode, accompanied by diagrams and narrative explanations in the text. The vast size of the ‘search algorithms’ subject domain and the variety of applications of search mean that much information--especially pertaining to applications of search algorithms--had to be left out; however, an extensive (though still limited) bibliography is included for follow-up by the reader. Exercises are provided for each chapter, except the five chapters on applications, and bibliographic notes accompany all chapters." --Computing Reviews

From the Back Cover

From the very beginning of artificial intelligence, search has been vital as a core technique in problem-solving. Heuristic Search provides a thorough overview of heuristic search with a balance of discussion between theoretical analysis and efficient implementation and application to real-world problems. Current developments in search such as pattern databases and search with efficient use of external memory and parallel processing units on main boards and graphics cards are detailed.

Search as a problem-solving tool is shown in applications for puzzle solving, game playing, constraint satisfaction and machine learning. While no previous familiarity with heuristic search is necessary, the reader should have a basic knowledge of algorithms, data structures, and calculus. Real-world case studies and chapter ending exercises are included.

The content is organized into five parts as follows:

  • Heuristic Search Primer: Basic Search Algorithms, Dictionary Data Structures, Automatically Created Heuristics
  • Heuristic Search under Memory Constraints: Linear-Space Search, Memory-Restricted Search, Symbolic Search, External Search
  • Heuristic Search Under Time Constraints: Distributed Search, State-Space Pruning, and Real-Time Search
  • Heuristic Search Variants: Adversary Search, Constraint Search, and Selective Search
  • Heuristic Search Applications: Action Planning, Automated System Verification, Vehicle Navigation, Computational Biology, and Robotics
