Secondly, we extend this to an exact schema theorem for GP with standard crossover applicable to the case of linear structures. Then we study, both mathematically and numerically, the schema equations and their fixed points for infinite populations for both a constant and a length-related fitness function. This allows us to characterise the bias induced by standard crossover. This is very peculiar. In the case of a constant fitness function, at the fixed-point, structures of any length are present with non-zero probability. However, shorter structures are sampled exponentially much more frequently than longer ones.", notes = "EuroGP'2001, part of \cite{miller:2001:gp}", }
