  abstract =     "This paper investigates the use of partial functions
                 and fitness sharing in genetic programming. Fitness
                 sharing is applied to populations of either partial or
                 total functions and the results compared. Applications
                 to two classes of problem are investigated: learning
                 multiplexer definitions, and learning (recursive) list
                 membership functions. In both cases, fitness sharing
                 approaches outperform the use of raw fitness, by
                 generating more accurate solutions with the same
                 population parameters. On the list membership problem,
                 variants using fitness sharing on populations of
                 partial functions outperform variants using total
                 functions, whereas populations of total functions give
                 better performance on some variants of multiplexer
