  abstract =     "It has been shown that standard genetic programming
                 using standard subtree crossover is prone to a form of
                 structural convergence which makes it extremely
                 difficult to make changes near the root, occasionally
                 causing runs to become trapped in local maxima. Based
                 on these structural limitations we propose a different
                 tree representation, AppGP, which we hope will avoid
                 this problem in some cases. In this paper, we describe
                 this representation, and compare its performance to the
                 performance of standard GP on a suite of test problems.
                 We find that on all of the test problems, AppGP does no
                 worse than standard GP, and in several it does
                 considerably better, suggesting that the representation
                 warrants further study",
