  abstract =     "This paper presents a large and systematic body of
                 data on the relative effectiveness of mutation,
                 crossover, and combinations of mutation and crossover
                 in genetic programming (GP). The literature of
                 traditional genetic algorithms contains related
                 studies, but mutation and crossover in GP differ from
                 their traditional counterparts in significant ways. In
                 this paper we present the results from a very large
                 experimental data set, the equivalent of approximately
                 12,000 typical runs of a GP system, systematically
                 exploring a range of parameter settings. The resulting
                 data may be useful not only for practitioners seeking
                 to optimize parameters for GP runs, but also for
                 theorists exploring issues such as the role of
                 {"}building blocks{"} in GP.",
