  abstract =     "Both control and data dependencies among primitives
                 impact the behavioural consistency of subprograms in
                 genetic programming solutions. Behavioural consistency
                 in turn impacts the ability of genetic programming to
                 identify and promote appropriate subprograms. We
                 present the results of modelling dependency through a
                 parameterized problem in which a subprogram exhibits
                 internal and external dependency levels that change as
                 the subprogram is successively combined into larger
                 subsolutions; We And that the key difference between
                 nonexistent and 'full' external dependency is a longer
                 time to solution identification and a lower likelihood
                 of success as shown by increased difficulty in
                 identifying and promoting correct subprograms.",
