  abstract =     "This paper describes an approach to online
                 simplification of evolved programs in genetic
                 programming (GP). Rather than manually simplifying
                 genetic programs after evolution for interpretation
                 purposes only, this approach automatically simplifies
                 programs during evolution. In this approach, algebraic
                 simplification rules, algebraic equivalence and prime
                 techniques are used to simplify genetic programs. The
                 simplification based GP system is examined and compared
                 to a standard GP system on a regression problem and a
                 classification problem. The results suggest that, at
                 certain frequencies or proportions, this system can not
                 only achieve superior performance to the standard
                 system on these problems, but also significantly reduce
                 the sizes of evolved programs.",
