  abstract =     "A considerable research effort has been performed
                 recently to improve the power of genetic programming
                 (GP) by accommodating semantic awareness. The semantics
                 of a tree implies its behaviour during the execution. A
                 reliable theoretical modelling of GP should be aware of
                 the behavior of individuals. Schema theory is a
                 theoretical tool used to model the distribution of the
                 population over a set of similar points in the search
                 space, referred by schema. There are several major
                 issues with relying on prior schema theories, which
                 define schemata in syntactic level. Incorporating
                 semantic awareness in schema theory has been scarcely
                 studied in the literature. In this paper, we present an
                 improved approach for developing the semantic schema in
                 GP. The semantics of a tree is interpreted as the
                 normalized mutual information between its output vector
                 and the target. A new model of the semantic search
                 space is introduced according to semantics definition,
                 and the semantic building block space is p...",
