  abstract =     "In this paper, we suggest tree-structure-aware GP
                 operators that heed tree distributions in structure
                 space and their possible structural difficulties. The
                 main idea of the proposed GP operators is to place the
                 generated offspring of crossover and/or mutation in a
                 specified region of tree structure space insofar as
                 possible, taking into account the observation that most
                 solutions are found in that region. To enable that, the
                 proposed operators are designed to use information
                 about the region to which the parents belong and
                 node/depth statistics of the subtree selected for

                 The proposed approach is applied to automatic gait
                 generation of quadruped robot to demonstrate the
                 effectiveness of it. The results show that the results
                 using the proposed tree-structure-aware operators are
                 superior to the results of standard GP for gait problem
                 in both fitness and velocity.",
