  abstract =     "This paper reports an improvement to genetic
                 programming (GP) search for the symbolic regression
                 domain, based on an analysis of dissimilarity and
                 mating. GP search is generally difficult to
                 characterise for this domain, preventing well motivated
                 algorithmic improvements. We first examine the ability
                 of various solutions to contribute to the search
                 process. Further analysis highlights the numerous
                 solutions produced during search with no change to
                 solution quality. A simple algorithmic enhancement is
                 made that reduces these events and produces a
                 statistically significant improvement in solution
                 quality. We conclude by verifying the generalisability
                 of these results on several other regression
                 instances",
