Developments on Product Propagation

Abstract : Product Propagation (pp) is an algorithm to backup probabilistic evaluations for abstract two-player games. It was shown that pp could solve Go problems as efficiently as Proof Number Search (pns). In this paper, we exhibit three domains where, for generic non-optimized versions, pp performs better (see the nuances in the paper) than previously known algorithms for solving games. The compared approaches include alpha-beta search, pns, and Monte-Carlo Tree Search. We also extend pp to deal with its memory consumption and to improve its solving time.
