Abstract: Covers beginner to advanced techniques used to solve abstract games of perfect information, such as Chess, checkers, Othello/reversi, and tic-tac-toe. Topics include game tree, minimax search, exhaustive vs. selective search, alpha-beta pruning, transposition tables, iterative deepening, move ordering techniques, quiescence search, board representation, evaluation functions, opening and endgame databases, minimal window search, history heuristic, forward prunning, and search extensions.
