  abstract =     "Loops and recursions are important structures in human
                 written computer programs. While various loops have
                 been successfully evolved with genetic programming
                 (GP), automatic generation of programs with recursions
                 has not been achieved. To fill this gap, this paper
                 develops three new methods at different levels of
                 generality to evolve programs with recursive structures
                 using GP. These new methods are examined and compared
                 with two GP methods with loops and a standard GP method
                 on three mathematic/symbolic regression problems
                 including repeating characteristics and three
                 artificial Ant problems. The results show that the new
                 methods outperform the two GP methods with loops and
                 standard GP on all these problems in terms of the
                 correctness of the evolved solutions and evolutionary
                 training time. While the more specifically designed
                 method achieves the best results, the more general
                 methods can still find perfect solutions and can be
                 applied to different problems.",
