Assessing Heuristic Searches:
Given a particular problem you want to build an agent to solve, so there may be more than one way of justifying it as a search problem, more than one choice for the search strategy and altered possibilities for heuristic measures. For a large extent, it is very tough to predict what the best choices will be, so then it will needs some experimentation to determine them. In some such cases, - If we calculate the effective branching rate, as given below to described - we can tell for sure if one heuristic measure is always being out-performed by another.
