  abstract =     "This paper evaluates the performance of various
                 methods to constant creation in Grammatical Evolution
                 (GE), and validates the results against those from
                 Genetic Programming (GP). Constant creation in GE is an
                 important issue due to the disruptive nature of ripple
                 crossover, which can radically remap multiple terminals
                 in an individual, and we investigate if more compact
                 methods, which are more similar to the GP style of
                 constant creation (Ephemeral Random Constants (ERCs),
                 perform better. The results are surprising. The GE
                 methods all perform significantly better than GP on
                 unseen test data, and we demonstrate that the standard
                 GE approach of digit concatenation does not produce
                 individuals that are any larger than those from methods
                 which are designed to use less genetic material.",
