  abstract =     "A representation-less model for genetic programming is
                 presented. The model is intended to examine the
                 mechanisms that lead to bloat in genetic programming
                 (GP). We discuss two hypotheses (fitness causes bloat
                 and neutral code is protective) and perform simulations
                 to examine the predictions deduced from these
                 hypotheses. Our observation is that predictions from
                 both hypotheses are realized in the simulated model.",
