                 experiments are used to evaluate the individual and
                 combined effects of genetic programming parameters.
                 Three binary classification problems are investigated
                 in a total of seven experiments consisting of 1108 runs
                 of a machine code genetic programming system. The
                 parameters having the largest effect in these
                 experiments are the population size and the number of
                 generations. A large number of parameters have
                 negligible effects. The experiments indicate that the
                 investigated genetic programming system is robust to
                 parameter variations, with the exception of a few
                 important parameters.",
