Abstract—In genetic programming, a search algorithm is expected to produce a program that achieves the desired final computation state (desired output). To reach that state, an executing program(More)
This study presents an extensive account of Locally Geometric Semantic Crossover (LGX), a semantically-aware recombination operator for genetic programming (GP). LGX is designed to exploit the semantic properties of programs and subprograms, in particular the geometry of semantic space that results from distance-based fitness functions used predominantly in(More)
We propose a novel crossover operator for tree-based genetic programming, that produces approximately geometric offspring. We empirically analyze certain aspects of geometry of crossover operators and verify performance of the new operator on both, training and test fitness cases coming from set of symbolic regression benchmarks. The operator shows superior(More)
This paper provides a structured, unified, formal and empirical perspective on all geometric semantic crossover operators proposed so far, including the exact geometric crossover by Moraglio, Krawiec, and Johnson, as well as the approximately geometric operators. We start with presenting the theory of geometric semantic genetic programming, and discuss the(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between individual differences in cognition and asymmetric patterns of cortical arousal in normal right-handed adults. Leftward asymmetry on a chimeric faces task was correlated with the ability to recognise faces and facial expression, and certain aspects of social skill. The correlation with(More)
Parity-odd domains, corresponding to nontrivial topological solutions of the QCD vacuum, might be created during relativistic heavy-ion collisions. These domains are predicted to lead to charge separation of quarks along the system's orbital momentum axis. We investigate a three-particle azimuthal correlator which is a P even observable, but directly(More)
We report the beam energy (sqrt[sNN]=7.7-200  GeV) and collision centrality dependence of the mean (M), standard deviation (σ), skewness (S), and kurtosis (κ) of the net-proton multiplicity distributions in Au+Au collisions. The measurements are carried out by the STAR experiment at midrapidity (|y|<0.5) and within the transverse momentum range 0.4<pT<0.8 (More)
