Programs are represented in PDGP as graphs with nodes representing functions and terminals, and links representing the flow of control and results. In the simplest form of PDGP links are directed and unlabelled, in which case PDGP can be considered a generalisation of standard GP. However, more complex representations can be used, which allow the exploration of a large space of possible programs including standard tree-like programs, logic networks, neural networks, recurrent transition networks, finite state automata, etc. In PDGP, programs are manipulated by special crossover and mutation operators which guarantee the syntactic correctness of the offspring. For this reason PDGP search is very efficient. PDGP programs can be execut...", notes = " This is the most complete account of PDGP and its performance so far. E.g. a symbolic regression problem x^6-2*x^4+x^2 in which PDGP does 16 times better than std GP and 13 times better than GP with ADFs.
