  abstract =     "Prior program representations for genetic programming
                 that incorporated features of modern programming
                 languages solved harder problems than earlier
                 representations, but required more complex genetic
                 operators. We develop the idea of using combinator
                 expressions as a program representation for genetic
                 programming. This representation makes it possible to
                 evolve programs with a variety of programming language
                 constructs using simple genetic operators. We
                 investigate the effort required to evolve
                 combinator-expression solutions to several problems:
                 linear regression, even parity on N inputs, and
                 implementation of the stack and queue data structures.
                 Genetic programming with combinator expressions
                 compares favourably to prior approaches, namely the
                 works of Yu [37], Kirshenbaum [18], Agapitos and Lucas
                 [1], Wong and Leung [35], Koza [20], Langdon [21], and
                 Katayama [17].",
