  abstract =     "the use of semantic information in genetic programming
                 operators has shown major improvements in recent years,
                 especially in the regression and boolean domain. As
                 semantic information is domain specific, using it in
                 other areas poses certain problems. Semantic operators
                 require being adapted for the problem domain they are
                 applied to. An attempt to create a semantic crossover
                 for program synthesis has been made with rather limited
                 success, but the results have provided insights about
                 using semantics in program synthesis. Based on this
                 initial attempt, this paper presents an improved
                 version of semantic operators for program synthesis,
                 which contains a small but significant change to the
                 overall functionality, as well as a novel measure for
                 the comparison of the semantics of subtrees. The
                 results show that the improved semantic crossover is
                 superior to the previous semantic operator in the
                 program synthesis domain.",
