  abstract =     "Genetics-based evolutionary computations typically
                 discount the role of mutation operation in the
                 induction of evolved structures. This is especially
                 true in genetic programming where mutation operations
                 for parse trees are often not used. Some practitioners
                 of genetic programming believe that mutation has an
                 important role in evolving fit parse trees. This
                 section describes several mutation operations for parse
                 trees used by some genetic programming enthusiasts.",
