An Analysis of Diversity in Genetic Programming
Gustafson, Steven Matt (2004) An Analysis of Diversity in Genetic Programming. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Genetic programming is a metaheuristic search method that uses a population of variable-length computer programs and a search strategy based on biological evolution. The idea of automatic programming has long been a goal of artificial intelligence, and genetic programming presents an intuitive method for automatically evolving programs. However, this method is not without some potential drawbacks. Search using procedural representations can be complex and inefficient. In addition, variable sized solutions can become unnecessarily large and difficult to interpret.
