It has been observed previously that genetic programming populations can collapse to all single node trees when a parsimony measure (tree node count) is used in a multiobjective setting. We have investigated the circumstances under which this can occur for both the 6-parity boolean learning task and a range of benchmark machine learning problems. We(More)
Using multiobjective genetic programming with a complexity objective to overcome tree bloat is usually very successful but can sometimes lead to undesirable collapse of the population to all single-node trees. In this paper we report a detailed examination of why and when collapse occurs. We have used different types of crossover and mutation operators(More)
