  abstract =     "In an attempt to address the scaling up of genetic
                 programming to handle complex problems, we have
                 proposed a hierarchical approach in which programs are
                 formed from independently evolved code fragments, each
                 of which is responsible for handling a subset of the
                 test input cases. Although this approach offers
                 substantial performance advantages in comparison to
                 more conventional systems, the programs it evolves
                 exhibit some undesirable properties for certain problem
                 domains. We therefore propose the introduction of a
                 self adaptive mechanism that allows the system
                 dynamically to focus evolutionary effort on the program
                 components most in need. Experimentation reveals that
                 not only does this technique lead to better-behaved
                 programs, it also gives rise to further significant
                 performance improvements.",
