Depth-Limited Search

September 4, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Like the normal depth-first search, depth-limited search is an uninformed search. It works exactly like depth-first search, but avoids its drawbacks regarding completeness by imposing a maximum limit on the depth of the search. Even if the search could still expand a vertex beyond that depth, it will not do so and thereby it will not follow infinitely deep paths or get stuck in cycles. Therefore depth-limited search will find a solution if it is within the depth limit, which guarantees at least completeness on all graphs.
