- Though backgammon is not strictly acyclic, loops
are quite rare, so ROUT may work well anyway.

- ...ROUT.
- Unlike TD, which works only with
parametric function approximators for which can be
calculated, ROUT can work with arbitrary function approximators,
including batch methods such as projection-pursuit and locally
weighted regression. For these comparative experiments, however, we
used linear or neural net fits for both algorithms.
