Abstract

This paper presents a dynamic strategy for monitoring the depth of program trees evolved by STEPS (Strongly Typed Evolutionary Programming System). STEPS evolves higher-order functional programs in the form of trees, which are allowed to grow or shrink to fit the size of the problem, via specialised genetic operators. Thus, the need for arbitrary cut-off mechanisms is eliminated.
