  abstract =     "This paper presents a new crossover operator for
                 genetic programming -- dominance crossover. Dominance
                 crossover is similar to the use of dominance in nature.
                 In nature, dominance is used as a genotype to phenotype
                 mapping when an organism carries pairs (or more than
                 one) chromosome, but here we use dominance on a haploid
                 structure. The haploid form contains all the
                 information relevant to the problem, and is the
                 structure that is widely used in evolutionary
                 algorithms. Dominance crossover is used as a way of
                 retaining and promoting successful genes (those which
                 increased the individual's fitness in the current
                 generation) into the next generation. Current crossover
                 operators fail to exploit knowledge acquired in
                 previous generations and rely highly on selection
                 pressures. Dominance crossover in theory allows this
                 exploitation to occur during crossover but we highlight
                 a problem with the application of dominance crossover
                 with genetic programming.",
