  abstract =     "Genetic programming (GP) is a very successful type of
                 learning algorithm that is hard to understand from a
                 theoretical point of view. With this paper we
                 contribute to the computational complexity analysis of
                 genetic programming that has been started recently. We
                 analyse GP in the well-known PAC learning framework and
                 point out how it can observe quality changes in the the
                 evolution of functions by random sampling. This leads
                 to computational complexity bounds for a simple tree GP
                 algorithm for perfectly learning any member of a simple
                 class of linear pseudo-Boolean functions. Furthermore,
                 we show that the same algorithm on the functions from
                 the same class finds good approximations of the target
                 function in less time.",
