  abstract =     "In this paper we propose a new algorithm called
                 HyperGPEFS (HyperGP with Explicit Fitness Sharing). It
                 is based on a HyperNEAT, which is a well-established
                 evolutionary method employing indirect encoding of
                 artificial neural networks. Indirect encoding in
                 HyperNEAT is realized via special function called
                 Compositional and Pattern Producing Network (CPPN),
                 able to describe a neural network of arbitrary size.
                 CPPNs are represented by network structures, which are
                 evolved by means of a slightly modified version of
                 another, well-known algorithm NEAT (NeuroEvolution of
                 Augmenting Topologies). HyperGP is a variant of
                 HyperNEAT, where the CPPNs are optimized by Genetic
                 Programming (GP). Published results reported promising
                 improvement in the speed of convergence.

                 Our approach further extends HyperGP by using fitness
                 sharing to promote a diversity of a population. Here,
                 we thoroughly compare all three algorithms on six
                 different tasks. Fitness sharing demands a definition
                 of a tree distance measure. Among other five, we
                 propose a generalized distance measure which, in
                 conjunction with HyperGPEFS, significantly outperforms
                 HyperNEAT and HyperGP on all, but one testing problems.
                 Although this paper focuses on indirect encoding, the
                 proposed distance measures are generally applicable.",
