Décomposition des jeux pour le General Game Playing

Abstract : This paper presents a general approach for the decomposition of games described in Game Description Language (GDL). In the General Game Playing framework (GGP), players can drastically decrease game search cost if they hold a decomposed version of the game. Previous works on decomposition rely on syntactical structures and writing habits of the GDL, or on the disjunctive normal form of the rules, which is very costly to compute. We offer an approach to decompose single or multi-player games based on information gathering during random simulations of the game (playouts). Our approach can handle the different classes of compound games and can process some difficult cases like synchrounous parallel games with compound moves and serial games. We tested our program on 597 games. Given 5k playouts, 70% of the game are decomposed in less than one minute. We demonstrate that for 87% of the games, 1k play-outs are sufficient to obtain a correct decomposition.
