Subtraction games is a class of combinatorial games. It was solved since the Sprague-Grundy Theory was put forward. This paper described a new algorithm for subtraction games. The new algorithm can find win or lost positions in subtraction games. In addition, it is much simpler than Sprague-Grundy Theory in one pile of the games.
Subtraction games is a class of impartial combinatorial games, They with finite subtraction sets are known to have periodic nim-sequences. So people try to find the regular of the games. But for specific of Sprague-Grundy Theory, it is too difficult to find, they obtained some conclusions just by simple observing. This paper used PTFN algorithm to analyze… (More)
