depth-first search
Jump to user comments
algorithm A graph search algorithm which extends the
current path as far as possible before backtracking to the
last choice point and trying the next alternative path.
Depth-first search may fail to find a solution if it enters a
cycle in the graph. This can be avoided if we never extend a
path to a node which it already contains.
