  abstract =     "Genetic programming (GP) is an evolutionary
                 algorithm-based paradigm inspired by natural evolution
                 to find a generalised hierarchy computer program
                 description. GP adopts a tree-structured code to
                 describe an identification problem. This paper proposed
                 a GP method based on Levy flight to estimate discrete
                 polynomial NARX (Nonlinear AutoRegressive with
                 eXogenous inputs) models. The Levy flight random walks
                 on increments distributed according to a heavy-tailed
                 probability distribution formed by the alpha-stable
                 distribution family. Besides, Levy flight is a Markov
                 processes. The distance from the origin of the random
                 walk tends to a stable distribution after a large
                 number of steps. These sorts of movements describe not
                 only the fluctuations in share prices, but also natural
                 behaviours as the way in which albatrosses search for
                 food or the flight of many insects. In this paper, the
                 contribution of Levy flight is related to the tune of
                 crossover and mutation probabilities in GP. The
                 proposed GP method based on Levy flight is used in an
                 experimental application, a poppet valve. Poppet-type
                 of valve is normally used in combustion engines to open
                 and close intake and exhaust ports in the cylinder
                 head. The very well machined adjust between seat and
                 poppet face gives the sealing feature that is improved
                 every time that the pressure inside the cylinder rises
                 up pushing the valve head against its seat. This type
                 of device is also used in the automotive industry to
                 control the emission levels on combustion engines by
                 recirculating burned gases into the combustion chamber.
                 Results are presented to demonstrate the utility of the
                 proposed GP method based on Levy flight as promising
                 technique in NARX (Nonlinear AutoRegressive with
                 eXogenous inputs) model identification of a poppet
                 valve.",
