astar_heuristic<Graph, CostType>

This class is a default implementation of the AStarHeuristic concept. It implements a "zero" heuristic -- a heuristic function that returns a cost of zero regardless of the vertex it is passed.

Model of


Template Parameters

Graph The type of the graph being searched.
CostType A type that can be used with the compare and combine functions passed to A*. Typically an integer or floating point type.

Where Defined


Member Functions

This class implements the single member function required by AStarHeuristic:
CostType operator()(graph_traits<Graph>::vertex_descriptor u); Called for the target of every out edge of a vertex being examined. Returns the cost, estimated by the heuristic, from vertex u to a goal.
