  abstract =     "Crossover is a core genetic operator in many
                 evolutionary algorithms (EAs). The performance of such
                 EAs on a given problem is dependent on properly
                 configuring crossover. A small set of common crossover
                 operators is used in the vast majority of EAs,
                 typically fixed for the entire evolutionary run.
                 Selecting which crossover operator to use and tuning
                 its associated parameters to obtain acceptable
                 performance on a specific problem often is a time
                 consuming manual process. Even then a custom crossover
                 operator may be required to achieve optimal
                 performance. Finally, the best crossover configuration
                 may be dependent on the state of the evolutionary

                 This paper introduces the Self-Configuring Crossover
                 operator encoded with linear genetic programming which
                 addresses these shortcomings while relieving the user
                 from the burden of crossover configuration. To
                 demonstrate its general applicability, the novel
                 crossover operator was applied without any problem
                 specific tuning. Results are presented showing it to
                 outperform the traditional crossover operators
                 arithmetic crossover, uniform crossover, and n-point
                 crossover on the Rosenbrock, Rastrigin, Offset
                 Rastrigin, DTrap, and NK Landscapes benchmark
