  abstract =     "In this chapter, a new GP-based algorithm is proposed.
                 The algorithm, named SGP (Statistical GP), exploits
                 statistical information, i.e. mean, variance and
                 correlation-based operators, in order to improve the GP
                 performance. SGP incorporates new genetic operators,
                 i.e. Correlation Based Mutation, Correlation Based
                 Crossover, and Variance Based Editing, to drive the
                 search process towards fitter and shorter solutions.
                 Furthermore, this work investigates the correlation
                 between diversity and fitness in SGP, both in terms of
                 phenotypic and genotypic diversity. First experiments
                 conducted on four symbolic regression problems
                 illustrate the goodness of the approach and permits to
                 verify the different behaviour of SGP in comparison
                 with standard GP from the point of view of the
                 diversity and its correlation with the fitness.",
