  abstract =     "In Genetic Programming. introns play at least two
                 substantial roles: (1) A structural protection role.
                 allowing the population to preserve highly-fit building
                 blocks; and (2) A global protection role. enabling an
                 individual to protect itself almost entirely against
                 the destructive effect of crossover. We introduce
                 Explicitly Defined Introns into Genetic Programming.
                 Our results suggest that the introduction of Explicitly
                 Defined Introns can improve fitness. generalisation,
                 and CPU time. Further, Explicitly Defined Introns
                 partially replace the role of Implicit Introns (that
                 is, introns that emerge from crossover and mutation
                 without being explicitly defined as such). Finally,
                 Explicitly Defined Introns and Implicit Introns appear,
                 in some situations, to work in tandem to produce better
                 training, fitness and generalization than occurs
                 without Explicitly Defined Introns.",
