  abstract =     "This paper investigates the effects on building blocks
                 of using simplification in a Genetic Programming (GP)
                 system to combat the problem of code bloat. The evolved
                 genetic programs are simplified online during the
                 evolutionary process using algebraic simplification
                 rules and hashing techniques. A simplified form of
                 building block (numerical-nodes) is tracked throughout
                 individual GP runs both when using or not using online
                 simplification of evolved genetic programs. The results
                 suggest that online simplification disrupts existing
                 potential building blocks during the evolution process.
                 However, GP with simplification is capable of creating
                 new building blocks which are used to form a more
                 accurate solution, when compared to the standard GP.
                 The effectiveness of GP systems using simplification
                 can be correlated to the creation of these new building
