  abstract =     "This paper evaluates different forms of rank-based
                 selection that are used with genetic algorithms and
                 genetic programming. Many types of rank based selection
                 have exactly the same expected value in terms of the
                 sampling rate allocated to each member of the
                 population. However, the variance associated with that
                 sampling rate can vary depending on how selection is
                 implemented. We examine two forms of tournament
                 selection and compare these to linear rank-based
                 selection using an explicit formula. Because selective
                 pressure has a direct impact on population diversity,
                 we also examine the interaction between selective
                 pressure and different mutation strategies.",
