- ...practical
- There are, of
course, other approximation techniques that increase practicality which
rely on various abstractions of the problem [1].

- Common knowledge about a fact
*x*means that everybody knows that everybody knows...that everybody knows*x*.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- This is in contrast to Russell's work, where
each node has a utility associated with it.

- ...believed
- We can anthropomorphize
this advice to say that, it does not help to pretend things are better
than they probably are; we must determine exactly where we stand and
take the optimal action based on this assessment.

- ...one.
- Test results
show that this approximation is, indeed, good enough.

- ...strategy
- In a pure strategy one action is chosen with
probability 1, the rest with probability 0.
