  1. Each row represents a separate initial history. The cost s(H) is the substitution cost of the simple history from which G is derived. Also given are the ambiguity u s (G), lower s l (G), and upper s u (G) substitution cost bounds for G. The minimum and maximum substitution costs of G-bounded AVG extensions found by sampling are denoted s(H smin ) and s(H smax ), resp.
