Grammatically-based Genetic Programming

  title={Grammatically-based Genetic Programming},
  author={Peter A. Whigham},
The genetic programming (GP) paradigm is a functional approach to inductively forming programs. The use of natural selection based on a tness function for reproduction of the program population has allowed many problems to be solved that require a non-xed representation.
