  abstract =     "This paper presents an extension to genetic
                 programming to allow the evolution of programs
                 containing local variables with static scope which obey
                 the invariant that all variables are bound at time of
                 use. An algorithm is presented for generating trees
                 which obey this invariant, and an extension to the
                 crossover operator is presented which preserves it. New
                 genetic operators are described which abstract
                 subexpressions to variables and delete variables.
                 Finally, extensions of this work to iteration and
                 functional constructs are discussed.",
