  abstract =     "Convergence is a necessary part of any successful GP
                 run, but is also a great weakness due to material lost
                 through the hemorrhage of genetic content through the
                 established evolutionary dynamics. This chapter
                 examines the phenomenon of convergence commonly
                 observed in evolutionary systems before introducing a
                 number of functionally distinct mechanisms are analysed
                 and tested with respect to their ability to modulate
                 the loss of potentially useful genetic content. Each of
                 these methods use little or no explicit measurements to
                 calculate diversity, and we show that they can have a
                 dramatic effect on empirical performance of GP.",
