  abstract =     "Probabilistic Incremental Program Evolution (PIPE) is
                 a novel technique for automatic program synthesis. We
                 combine probability vector coding of program
                 instructions [Schmidhuber, 1997], Population-Based
                 Incremental Learning (PBIL) [Baluja and Caruana, 1995]
                 and tree-coding of programs used in variants of Genetic
                 Programming (GP) [ \cite{icga85:cramer} ;
                 \cite{koza:book} ]. PIPE uses a stochastic selection
                 method for successively generating better and better
                 programs according to an adaptive ``probabilistic
                 prototype tree''. No crossover operator is used. We
                 compare PIPE to Koza's GP variant on a function
                 regression problem and the 6-bit parity problem.",
