  abstract =     "Koza has shown how automatically defined functions
                 (ADFs) can reduce computational effort in the GP
                 paradigm. In Koza's ADF, as well as in standard GP, an
                 improvement in a part of a program (an ADF or a main
                 body) can only be transferred via crossover. In this
                 article, we consider whether it is a good idea to
                 transfer immediately improvements found by a single
                 individual to the whole population. A system that
                 implements this idea has been proposed and tested for
                 the EVEN-5-PARITY and EVEN-6-PARITY problems. Results
                 are very encouraging: computational effort is reduced
                 (compared to Koza's ADFs) and the system seems to be
                 less prone to early stagnation. Finally, our work
                 suggests further research where less extreme approaches
                 to our idea could be tested.",
