Abstract (EN)In this paper we present a framework for testing various algorithms that deal with transpositions in Monte-Carlo Tree Search (MCTS). When using transpositions in MCTS, a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) is progressively developed instead of a tree. There are multiple ways to handle the exploration exploitation dilemma when dealing with transpositions. We propose parameterized ways to compute the mean of the child, the playouts of the parent and the playouts of the child. We test the resulting algorithms on LeftRight an abstract single player game and on Hex. For both games, original configurations of our algorithms improve on state of the art algorithms.
