Example text

Expected-outcome, as a statistical measure of distribution means, is governed by the law of large numbers, which states t h a t as t h e size of a population grows, t h e observed m e a n approaches t h e distribution's actual mean at a rate linear in t h e population size [21]. In the case of (d, 6, / ) - t r e e s , this means t h a t as t h e trees get deeper, expected-outcome values (observed means) become increasingly accurate measures of / ' s theoretical mean. Since the size of t h e leaf population is given by 6 d , t h e r a t e of increased accuracy is exponential in d.

In other words, if the value at the Ξι,-quantile of F is 1, Td{v) wm< converge to 1; if it is 0, convergence will be to 0. The only instance in which the value of the root may be either 0 or 1, then, is when the value at the appropriate quantile is in some neighborhood around Ξ&. On an S-curve, this may involve a significant portion of the curve. In a step function, however, the "neighborhood" is a point; unless p is set at exactly that point, it will either be above or below the relevant threshold.

When neither player can move, the one with the most discs is declared the winner. (For more detailed descriptions, see [22] [28] [48]). These games contributed four small variants for study, although only two of them, 3-by-3 tic-tac-toe and 4-by-4 Othello, actually have game-trees that are small enough to generate entirely. The other two, 4-by-4 tic-tac-toe and 6-by-6 Othello, were chosen because they are small enough for large portions of their trees to be examined, yet large enough to offer more interesting testbeds than their smaller cousins.
