  abstract =     "In this paper, the strong causality of program tree
                 representations is considered. A quantitative,
                 probabilistic causality measure is used in contrast to
                 statistical fitness landscape analysis methods.
                 Although it fails to rank different problems according
                 to their difficulty, it is helpful for choosing the
                 right coding for a given task. The investigation uses a
                 metric on the search space called the tree edit
                 distance. Different ways to define such a measure are
