  abstract =     "The aim of this paper is to refute the claim that the
                 success of genetic programming depends on
                 problem-specific high-level primitives. We therefore
                 apply genetic programming to the lambda-calculus, a
                 Turing complete formalism with only two (very
                 low-level) primitives.

                 Genetic programming is suited to find the predecessor
                 function in the space of Lambda-definable functions
                 without a priori knowledge. The predecessor function is
                 historically important and documented to be a challenge
                 and difficult to find.",
