  abstract =     "The paper investigates the use of partial functions in
                 genetic programming. Previous work (R.I. McKay, 2000),
                 has shown that the convergent behaviour of populations
                 of partial functions is very similar to that of
                 populations of total functions. However the convergence
                 rates of populations of partial functions have been
                 slower. The results presented demonstrate a significant
                 improvement in the rate of convergence of populations
                 of partial functions, and indicate that partial
                 functions represent a realistic alternative to total
                 functions for a range of problems",
