Abstract:
The phenomenon of code growth [CG] is well documented in genetic programming. [GP] Several well supported theories exist to explain code growth, [CG] each of which focuses on introns, sections of code that do not contribute to fitness. However, several researchers have pointed out that these theories, and code growth [CG] itself, does not seem to depend upon the presence of introns. In this paper we show for the first time that code growth [CG] can occur, albeit quite slowly, even with exons that have a significant impact on fitness.
