Graph of state-space solution. Normal states in brown, feast states in red, goal state in blue. Each arrow represents an operation, such as MC->RB which stands for “1 missionary and 1 cannibal moved to right-bank”, or CC->LB which stands for “2 cannibals moved to left-bank”. The operations taken to reach solution state are colored blue.
