Fixed Parameter Analogues of PSpace and k-Move Games
We define parameterized complexity classes that allow us to investigate the complexity of k-move games. We establish a number of concrete hardness and completeness results for games such as the k-move versions of Geography and Chess. We relate these classes to bounded space computations.
