### COSC 387: Artificial Intelligence

Project 2
Fall 2004

Due: Oct 13 @ 5 P.M.
7 points

1. In Lisp, encode the following weighted graph:

2. Use the following latitudes and longitudes for the cities to write a function that returns the estimated distance between two cities.
```Paris, 48:51:00N 2:20:00E
Caen, 49:15:00N 0:20:00W
Calais, 50:57:36N 1:57:00E
Dijon, 47:21:00N 5:02:00E
Lyon, 45:44:00N 4:52:00E
Grenoble, 45:21:36N 5:19:12E
Avignon, 43:50:00N 4:45:00E
Marseille, 43:18:00N 5:25:00E
Nice, 43:42:00N 7:21:00E
Montpellier, 43:38:00N 3:53:00E
Toulouse, 43:37:00N 1:27:00E
Bordeaux, 44:50:00N 0:37:00W
Limoges, 45:30:00N 1:10:00E
Rennes, 48:07:00N 1:02:00W
Brest, 48:24:00N 4:30:00W
Strasbourg, 48:32:24N 7:37:34E
Nancy, 48:50:00N 6:10:00E
Nantes, 47:15:00N 1:30:00W
```

3. Implement

1. one informed search algorithm (e.g., hill-climbing, or best-first search), and
2. A*.

Each function should return the path and its cost.

4. Using each algorithm, attempt to find the shortest path between the following initial and goal cities:

 Run Initial State Goal State 1 Brest Marseille 2 Montpellier Calais 3 Strasbourg Bordeaux 4 Paris Grenoble 5 Grenoble Paris 6 Brest Grenoble 7 Grenoble Brest

5. For each algorithm, over the seven runs:

1. what was the average number of nodes entered (i.e., visited)?
2. what was the average number of nodes expanded?
3. what was the average number of nodes maintained (i.e., stored)?
4. how often did it find the optimum?

Place these results in comments at the top of your source file.

Submit your project as a single file as an attachment to an e-mail. Send the e-mail to me. The attachment should be named so that the file stem is your NetID and the extension is .lisp.

You must submit your project before 5 PM on the due date.

When storing source code on university machines, it is important to set file permissions so others cannot read the file. To turn off such read/write permissions, type at the UNIX prompt chmod og-rw <file>, where <file> is the name of your source file.
