- A* Heuristics introduction with visualizations and optimality comparisons. — Patrick Dillon
- A consistent heuristic (or monotone) is admissible and always incrementally approaches the goal. "It's necessary and sufficient for a heuristic to obey the triangle inequality in order to be consistent." — Patrick Dillon
PDDL Planning tips
All planners were not created equal. FF handles most PDDL files. Parse errors in the others can be fixed by rewriting your grammar to remove:
- Complex (non-atomic) types
- The 'or' conjunction
In general, a grammar with many actions with few arguments will work 'better' than a grammar with few actions with many arguments. If you get stuck, just make the actions as simple as possible and use lots of them.
I'm not sure which is worse, that there's a facebook page for Satplan or that I'm the only one who currently likes it.
