Iterative Deepening A* (IDA*)

Iterative Deepening A* (IDA*)[Korf, R. E., ``Depth-First Iterative-Deepening: An Optimal Admissible Tree Search'', Artificial Intelligence, vol. 27, no. 1 (Sept. 1985).] combines a depth-first, iterative-deepening style of search with the use of heuristic functions as in A*.

  1. Initially, set threshold = h(start) .

  2. Perform a depth-first search, failing at any node n for which g(n) + h(n) > threshold .

  3. If no solution is found, increase threshold to the minimum value of g(n) + h(n) that was over threshold in the previous search, and retry.
