  abstract =     "This paper presents a technique to measure the
                 influence a child node has on the result of its parent
                 nodes in a program generated by genetic programming.
                 Child nodes that have no influence are inactive, and
                 can be removed from the individual without affecting
                 the result of that individual, thus reducing its size.
                 This technique is described for several types of
                 non-terminal nodes, and the effect of the operation on
                 the size of individuals and convergence speed of the
                 population is tested experimentally.",
