  abstract =     "the absolute benefit, a measure of improvement in the
                 fitness space, is derived from the viewpoint of fitness
                 distribution and fitness trajectory analysis. It is
                 used for online operator-adaptation, where the
                 optimisation of density estimation models serves as an
                 example. A new information theory based measure is
                 proposed to judge the accuracy of the evolved models.
                 Further, the absolute benefit is applied to offline
                 analysis of new gradient based operators used for
                 coefficient adaptation in genetic programming. An
                 efficient method to calculate the gradient information
                 is presented.",
