Several heuristics in the literature purport to improve this—see, for example, Nilson (1971), Mostow and Prieditis (1989), and Hansson (1992). 3 1 6 as Implement A using the two simple heuristics, well as one other heuristic from the literature. You may not use code from any other sources, other than the pseudo-code provided in the book. Run your program on the following three ∗ initial states: 7 5 0 2 4 3 1 6 You should submit: 2 7 4 0 6 1 3 5 7 6 0 2 3 4 1 5 • A print out of your source code, with comments. 2 7 • A description of the third heuristic, and where you found it. 4 0 6 • The solution for each of the three initial states (found using any of the heuristics). A solution consists of a series of boards going from the initial 1 3 5 7 6 0 state to the goal state. 2 3 4 • The number of nodes expanded for each heuristic for each of the three initial states (9 numbers). 1 5 • A discussion of why you think each heuristic did better or worse (in terms of number of nodes expanded). • A brief description of each class and major function in your code. 1 7 6 0 2 3 4 1 5 ...
