  abstract =     "We define fitness structure in genetic programming to
                 be the mapping between the subprograms of a program and
                 their respective fitness values. This paper shows how
                 various fitness structures of a problem with
                 independent subsolutions relate to the acquisition of
                 subsolutions. The rate of subsolution acquisition is
                 found to be directly correlated with fitness structure
                 whether that structure is uniform, linear or
                 exponential. An understanding of fitness structure
                 provides partial insight into the complicated
                 relationship between fitness function and the outcome
                 of genetic programming's search.",
