  abstract =     "This paper presents an empirical study of the
                 variation of program size over time, for a form of
                 Genetic Programming called Cartesian Genetic
                 Programming. Two main types of Cartesian genetic
                 programming are examined: one uses a fully connected
                 graph, with no redundant nodes, while the other allows
                 partial connectedness and has redundant nodes. Studies
                 are reported here for fitness based search and for a
                 flat fitness landscape. The variation of program size
                 with generation does not behave in a similar way to
                 that reported in other studies on standard Genetic
                 Programming. Depending on the form of Cartesian genetic
                 programming, it is found that there is either very weak
                 program bloat or zero bloat. It is argued that an
                 important factor in the analysis of the change of
                 program length is neutral drift, and that if genotype
                 redundancy is present, the genetic neutral drift
                 simultaneously improves search and compresses program
