The standard map adopted in GE is a depth-first expansion of the non-terminal symbols during the derivation sequence. Earlier studies have indicated that allowing the path of the expansion to be under the guidance of evolution as opposed to a de- terministic process produced significant performance gains on all of the benchmark problems analysed. In this study we extend this analysis to in- clude a breadth-first and random map, investigate additional benchmark problems, and take into consideration the implications of recent results on alternative grammar representations with this new evidence. We con- clude that it is possible to improve the performance of grammar-based Genetic Programming by the manner in which a genotype-phenotype map is performed.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Springer||Copyright (published version):||2010 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg||Keywords:||Grammatical evolution;Genotype phenotype map;Genetic programming;Evolutionary computation;Natural computing||Subject LCSH:||Genetic programming (Computer science)
