  abstract =     "In this report a number of new reproduction operators
                 for genetic programming (GP) is introduced. These
                 operators have in common that they link the genetic
                 information to a position in the expression or program
                 tree. The GP engine, that implements the operators,
                 limits both the operator arity and tree depth. In this
                 way the expression trees become restricted structures.
                 The information linking together with the fixed
                 structures, transform the GP engine into a genetic
                 algorithm with even better performance than common

                 Without loss of effectivity, these adjustments to
                 ordinary GP have the schema theory apply well to GP.",

                 Positional Genetic Programming (genetic algorithms with
                 encoded tree structures), 1996. This report describes a
                 genetic programming engine implemented as a genetic
                 algorithm, i.e. it uses fixed sized chromosomes and
                 allows for ordinary crossover operators. Positional
                 Genetic Programming turns out to perform better than
                 the usual genetic programming scheme, that uses
                 variable sized structures and random subtree
