227Exercise 6.8 clarification
- Oct 3, 2003I think Exercise 6.8 is unclear in describing what it is asking the
student to do.
I think my problem is that I'm having trouble visualizing the game
tree. Does a "die-roll sequence" define the game tree? What exactly is
a "die-roll sequence"? I'm assuming its just 50 rolls of the die. Is
this incorrect? If someone could perhaps rephrase the question or
provide any insight into what 6.8 is looking for, I'd appreaciate it.
Maybe showing the game state tree created by some sequence would be
helpful. The question is below so you don't have to reach for your
book. :) Thanks.
6.8 Consider the following procedure for choosing moves in games with
- Generate some die-roll sequences (say, 50) down to a suitable
depth (say, 8)
- With known die rolls, the game tree becomes deterministoc. For
each die-roll sequence, solve the resulting deterministic game tree
- Use the results to estimate the value of each move and to choose
Will this procedure work well? Why (not)?
