3.5 Uninformed Search Strategies

A problem determines the graph and the goal but not which path to select from the frontier. This is the job of a search strategy. A search strategy specifies which paths are selected from the frontier. Different strategies are obtained by modifying how the selection of paths in the frontier is implemented.

This section presents three uninformed search strategies that do not take into account the location of the goal. Intuitively, these algorithms ignore where they are going until they find a goal and report success.
