Couple of decades back, there was a tremendous development in the field of algorithms, which were aimed at finding efficient solutions for widespread applications. The benefits of these algorithms were observed in their optimality and simplicity with speed. Many of the algorithms were readdressed to solve the problem of finding shortest path. Heuristic search techniques make use of problem specific knowledge to find efficient solutions. Most of these techniques determine the next best possible state leading towards the goal state by using evaluation function.
