I can not understand the difference between generation and expansion of nodes. How the time and space complexity of BFS are different in each two scenarios?

    Test at generation: 1+b+b2+...+b^d=O(b^d)

    Test at expansion: 1+b+b2+...+b^d+(b^d−1)b=O(b^d+1) 
  • $\begingroup$ Could you please describe the algorithms for so-called "generation" and "expansion"? $\endgroup$ – xskxzr Jun 3 '18 at 13:43
