  abstract =     "Gene Expression Programming (GEP) is an evolutionary
                 algorithm that incorporates both the idea of a simple,
                 linear chromosome of fixed length used in Genetic
                 Algorithms (GAs) and the tree structure of different
                 sizes and shapes used in Genetic Programming (GP). As
                 with other GP algorithms, GEP has difficulty finding
                 appropriate numeric constants for terminal nodes in the
                 expression trees. In this work, we describe a new
                 approach of constant generation using Differential
                 Evolution (DE), a real-valued GA robust and efficient
                 at parameter optimization. Our experimental results on
                 two symbolic regression problems show that the approach
                 significantly improves the performance of the GEP
                 algorithm. The proposed approach can be easily extended
                 to other Genetic Programming variations.",
