  abstract =     "In various nuances of evolutionary algorithms it has
                 been observed that variable sized genomes exhibit large
                 degrees of redundancy and corresponding undue growth.
                 This phenomenon is commonly referred to as ``bloat.''
                 The present contribution investigates the role of
                 crossover operators as the cause for length changes in
                 variable length genetic algorithms and linear GP. Three
                 crossover operators are defined; each is tested with
                 three different fitness functions. The aim of this
                 article is to indicate suitable designs of crossover
                 operators that allow efficient exploration of designs
                 of solutions of a wide variety of sizes, while at the
                 same time avoiding bloat.",
