Hierarchical Genetic Programming using Local Modules
Author(s): Wolfgang Banzhaf ,Dirk Banscherus ,Peter Dittrich

Subject(s): CX, CX.66

Category: Brief Article


This paper presents a new modular approach to Genetic Programming, hierarchical GP (hGP) based on the introduction of local modules. A module in a hGP program is context-dependent and should not be expected to improve all programs of a population but rather a very specific subset providing the same context. This new modular approach allows for a natural recursiveness in that local modules themselves may define local sub-modules.
