Further, the analytic quotient operator is differentiable. We also show that the new analytic quotient operator stabilises the variance of the intermediate quantities in the tree.", notes = "Discussion of NaN inf (IEEE754, 1985). Cites \cite{keijzer03}. Analytic Quotient AQ(x,y) = x/sqrt(1+y*y). Normal (single objective SOGP). MOGP used to limit bloat (cf \cite{langdon:book}). PCGP doi:10.1162/106365602760234117 Tested on six regression problems (do any of them have negative values?) 'using the AQ operator always yielded the smallest mean test errors' (sec 3). 'AQ yields the smallest standard deviation' (except one case, sec 3). 'correlation between low training error and low test error' (sec 4). Fig 3 uses log scales. Bloat shown in Table 12. Also known as \cite{6186815}", }
