# In This Question You Will Construct A Table Showing The Number Of States Expanded Wh 2903228

Question 1: Search Algorithms for the 15-Puzzle (2 marks)
In this question you will construct a table showing the number of states
expanded when the 15-puzzle is solved, from various starting positions, using
four different searches:
(i) Uniform Cost Search (with Dijkstra’s Algorithm)
(ii) Iterative Deepening Search
(iii) A*Search (using the Manhattan Distance heuristic)
(iv) Iterative Deepening A*Search
Go to the Course Web Site, Week 3 Prolog Code: Path Search, scroll to the
Activity at the bottom of the page and click on “prolog search.zip”.
Unzip the file and change directory to prolog search, e.g.
unzip prolog_search.zip
cd prolog_search
Start prolog and load puzzle15.pl and ucsdijkstra.pl by typing
[puzzle15].
[ucsdijkstra].
Then invoke the search for the specified start10 position by typing
start10(S), solve(S,P,G,N), showsol(P).
When the answer comes back, just hit Enter/Return. This version of UCS
uses Dijkstra’s algorithm which is memory efficient, but is designed to return
only one answer. Note that the length of the path is returned as G, and the
total number of states expanded during the search is returned as N.
(a) Draw up a table with four rows and five columns. Label the rows as UCS,
IDS, A* and IDA*
, and the columns as start10, start20, start27,
start35 and start43. Run each of the following algorithms on each of
the 5 start states:
(i) [ucsdijkstra]
(ii) [ideepsearch]
(iii) [astar]
(iv) [idastar]
