  abstract =     "The use of higher-order functions, as a method of
                 abstraction and re-use in EC encodings, has been the
                 subject of relatively little research. In this paper we
                 introduce and give motivation for the ideas of
                 higher-order functions, and describe their general
                 advantages in EC encodings. We implement grammars using
                 higher-order ideas for two problem domains, music and
                 3D architectural design, and use these grammars in the
                 grammatical evolution paradigm. We demonstrate four
                 advantages of higher-order functions (patterning of
                 phenotypes, non-entropic mutations, compression of
                 genotypes, and natural expression of artistic
                 knowledge) which lead to beneficial results on our
