  abstract =     "This paper first analyses the impact of variance on
                 schema transmission. Working from an exact derivation
                 of the expected variance in schema transmission, it
                 derives and analyses the signal-to-noise ratio for
                 schemata. The paper then presents short term schema
                 transmission probability results that focus on newly
                 created schemata in the population. The analysis
                 reveals the relative dependencies between schema
                 transmission, population size, schema measured fitness,
                 schema fragility and schema creation.",
