  abstract =     "This paper aims to improve the capability of genetic
                 programming to tackle the evolution of cooperation:
                 evolving multiple partial solutions that
                 collaboratively solve structurally and functionally
                 complex problems. A multilevel genetic programming
                 approach is presented based on a new computational
                 multilevel selection framework [19]. This approach
                 considers biological group selection theory to
                 encourage cooperation, and a new cooperation operator
                 to build solutions hierarchically. It extends evolution
                 from individuals to multiple group levels, leading to
                 good performance on both individuals and groups. The
                 applicability of this approach is evaluated on 7
                 multi-class classification problems with different
                 features, such as non-linearity, skewed data
                 distribution and large feature space. The results, when
                 compared to other cooperative evolutionary algorithms
                 in the literature, demonstrate that this approach
                 improves solution accuracy and consistency, and
                 simplifies solution complexity. In addition, the
                 problem is decomposed as a result of evolution without
                 human interference.",
