  abstract =     "Here, in this paper, we survey work on modularity in
                 Genetic Programming GP. The motivation for modularity
                 was driven by research efforts, as we shall see, to
                 make GP programs smaller and more efficient. In the
                 literature, modularity has commonly used Koza's term,
                 Automatically Defined Functions ADF. But, we shall see,
                 that the modularity concept has undergone many name and
                 design changes. From the early ideas of Koza and
                 Price's Defined Building Blocks DBB to Binard and
                 Felty's work with System F and GP Briggs and O'Neill's
                 work with Combinators in GP. Our goal in this paper is
                 to survey the literature on this evolution. This will
                 include Automatically Defined Functions ADFs,
                 Automatically Defined Macros ADM, Adaptive
                 Representation Through Learning ARL, Module Acquisition
                 MA, Hierarchically Defined Local Modules HGP, Higher
                 Order Functions using lambda calculus LC and
                 Combinators. We also include critiques by researchers
                 on the viability these various efforts.",
