  abstract =     "This paper contributes to the rigorous understanding
                 of genetic programming algorithms by providing runtime
                 complexity analyses of the well-studied Max problem.
                 Several experimental studies have indicated that it is
                 hard to solve the Max problem with crossover-based
                 algorithms. Our analyses show that different variants
                 of the Max problem can provably be solved using simple
                 mutation-based genetic programming algorithms.

                 Our results advance the body of computational
                 complexity analyses of genetic programming, indicate
                 the importance of mutation in genetic programming, and
                 reveal new insights into the behavior of mutation-based
                 genetic programming algorithms.",
