  abstract =     "We provide strong theoretical and experimental
                 evidence that standard sub-tree crossover with uniform
                 selection of crossover points pushes a population of
                 a-ary GP trees towards a distribution of tree sizes of
                 the form:

                 Pr{n} = (1 - ap)C_n^{an + 1}(1-p)^{(a-1)n+1} p^n

                 where n is the number of internal nodes in a tree and p
                 is a constant. This result generalises the result
