Abstract

Marvin is a forward-chaining heuristic-search planner. The basic search strategy used is similar to FF's enforced hill-climbing with helpful actions (Hoffmann and Nebel 2001); Marvin extends this strategy, adding extra features to the search and preprocessing steps to infer information from the domain.
