  abstract =     "In various evolutionary computing algorithms, mutation
                 operators are employed as a means of preserving
                 diversity of populations. In genetic programming (GP),
                 by contrast, mutation tends to be viewed as offering
                 little benefit, to the extent that it is often not
                 implemented in GP systems. We investigate the role of
                 mutation in GP, and attempt to answer questions
                 regarding its effectiveness as a means for enhancing
                 diversity, and the consequent effects of any such
                 diversity promotion on the solution finding performance
                 of the algorithm. We find that mutation can be
                 beneficial for GP, but subject to the proviso that it
                 be tailored to enhance particular forms of diversity.",
