  abstract =     "The late-acceptance hill-climbing (LAHC) metaheuristic
                 is a stochastic hill-climbing algorithm with a simple
                 history mechanism, proposed by Burke and Bykov in 2008,
                 which seems to give a remarkable and reliable
                 performance improvement relative to hill-climbing
                 itself. LAHC is here used for the first time for
                 genetic programming problems, with a grammatical
                 encoding. A novel variant of LAHC with an initial
                 random sampling is also proposed. Performance of both
                 is competitive with full population-based search.",
