  abstract =     "Loop is an important structure in human written
                 programs. However, it is seldom used in the evolved
                 programs in genetic programming (GP). use of while-loop
                 structure in GP for the factorial and the artificial
                 ant problems. Two different forms of the while-loop
                 structure, count-controlled loop and event-controlled
                 loop, are investigated. The results suggest that both
                 forms of the while-loop structure can be successfully
                 evolved in GP, the system with the while-loop structure
                 is more effective and more efficient than the standard
                 GP system for the two problems, and the evolved genetic
                 programs with the loop-structure are much easier to
