Title How to search for millions of queens
Date 1988
Description The n-queens problem is a classical combinatorial problem in artificial intelligence (AI) area. Since its simplicity and regular structure, this problem has widely been chosen as a testbed to develop and benchmark new AI search problem-solving strategies in the AI community. Due to its inherent complexity, so far even very efficient AI search algorithms can only find a solution for n-queens problem with n up to about 100. In this manuscript we present a new probabilistic local search algorithm which is based on a gradient-based heuristic. This efficient algorithm is capable of finding a solution for over 1,000,000 queens in several CPU hours on a 25Mhz Motorola 68030 computer.
