  abstract =     "Genetic programming (GP) has been highly successful as
                 a technique for getting computers to automatically
                 solve problems without having to tell them explicitly
                 how to do it. genetic programming has been used to
                 solve practical problems but along with this
                 engineering approach there has been interest in how and
                 why it works. This book consolidates this theoretical
                 work. One of the goals of any theoretical work is to
                 better understand the subject. This is useful in its
                 own right and as an aid to designing improvements. We
                 will describe several new genetic operators that arose
                 naturally from theoretical work and suggest modest
                 changes to the way existing GP systems could be used on
                 specific problems to yield improved performance. No
                 doubt these operators and suggestions will be of direct
                 practical interest, even to those who are not
                 interested in 'theory' for its own sake.
