  abstract =     "We model the distribution of functions implemented by
                 non-recursive programs, similar to linear genetic
                 programming (GP). Most functions are constants, the
                 remainder are mostly parsimonious. The effect of ad-hoc
                 rules on GP are described and new heuristics are

                 Bounds on how long programs need to be before the
                 distribution of their functionality is close to its
                 limiting distribution are provided in general and for
                 average computers.

                 Results for average computers and a model like genetic
                 programming are experimentally tested.",
