We present a novel approach using higher-order functions and λ abstraction to evolve recursive and modular programs. Moreover, a new term “structure abstraction” is introduced to describe the property emerged from the higher-order function program structure. We test this technique on the general even-parity problem. The results indicate that this approach is very effective with the general even-parity problem due to the appropriate selection of the foldr higher-order function. Initially, foldr… CONTINUE READING
