  abstract =     "Although automatically defined functions (ADFs) are
                 able to significantly reduce the computational effort
                 required in genetic programming, reasonably di{\AE}cult
                 problems still require large amounts of computation
                 time. However, every time genetic programming evolves a
                 program to solve a problem those ADFs have to be
                 rediscovered from scratch. If the ADFs of a correct
                 program contain partial solutions that are generally
                 useful, they can be used to solve similar problems.
                 This paper proposes a technique to make the information
                 of successful ADFs accessible to genetic programming in
                 order to reduce the computational costs of solving
                 related problems with less computational effort and
                 demonstrates its utility using the example of the even
                 n-parity function.",
