  abstract =     "This paper examines how the semantic locality of a
                 search operator affects the fitness landscape of
                 Genetic Programming (GP). We compare the fitness
                 landscapes of GP search when standard subtree mutation
                 and arecently proposed semantic-based mutation,
                 Semantic Similarity-based Mutation (SSM), are used. The
                 comparison is based on two well-studied fitness
                 landscape measures, namely, the autocorrelation
                 function and information content. The experiments were
                 conducted on a family of symbolic regression problems
                 with increasing degrees of difficulty. The results show
                 that SSM helps to significantly smooth out the fitness
                 landscape of GP compared to standard subtree mutation.
                 This gives an explanation for the better performance of
                 SSM over standard subtree mutation operator.",
