Homologous Crossover in Genetic Programming

  title={Homologous Crossover in Genetic Programming},
  author={Frank D. Francone and Markus Conrads and Wolfgang Banzhaf and Peter Nordin},
In recent years, the genetic programming crossover operator has been criticized on both theoretical and empirical grounds. This paper introduces a new crossover operator for linear genomes that encourages the emergence of positional homology in the population. Preliminary experimental results suggest that this approach is a promising direction for redesign of the mechanism of crossover.
