  abstract =     "We present N-gram GP, an estimation of distribution
                 algorithm for the evolution of linear computer
                 programs. The algorithm learns and samples a joint
                 probability distribution of triplets of instructions
                 (or 3-grams) at the same time as it is learning and
                 sampling a program length distribution. We have tested
                 N-gram GP on symbolic regressions problems where the
                 target function is a polynomial of up to degree 12 and
                 lawn-mower problems with lawn sizes of up to 12x12.
                 Results show that the algorithm is effective and scales
                 better on these problems than either linear GP or
                 simple stochastic hill-climbing.",
