In this paper, we present a new heuristic searching algorithm by introducing the statistical inference method on the basis of algorithm A (or A*). It is called algorithm SA. In a simplified search space, a uniform m-ary tree, we obtain the following result. Using algorithm SA, a goal node can be found with probability one, and its mean complexity is O(NÂ·ln N) where N is the depth at which the goal is located.
