  abstract =     "Initially, Artificial Evolution focuses on
                 Evolutionary Algorithms handling solutions coded in
                 fixed length structures. In this context, the role of
                 crossover is clearly the mixing of information between
                 solutions. The development of Evolutionary Algorithms
                 operating on structures with variable length, of which
                 genetic programming is one of the most representative
                 instances, opens new questions on the effects of
                 crossover. Beside mixing, two new effects are
                 identified : the diffusion of information inside
                 solutions and the variation of the solutions sizes. In
                 this paper, we propose a experimental framework to
                 study these three effects and apply it on three
                 different crossovers for genetic programming : the
                 Standard Crossover, the One-Point Crossover and the
                 Maximum Homologous Crossover. Exceedingly different
                 behaviours are reported leading us to consider the
                 necessary future decoupling of the mixing, the
                 diffusion and the size variation.",
