Balancing Accuracy and Parsimony in Genetic Programming

  title={Balancing Accuracy and Parsimony in Genetic Programming},
  author={Byoung-Tak Zhang and Heinz M{\"u}hlenbein},
  journal={Evolutionary Computation},
Genetic programming is distinguished from other evolutionary algorithms in that it uses tree representations of variable size instead of linear strings of fixed length. The flexible representation scheme is very important because it allows the underlying structure of the data to be discovered automatically. One primary difficulty, however, is that the solutions may grow too big without any improvement of their generalization ability. In this article we investigate the fundamental relationship… CONTINUE READING
