International Journal of Innovative Computing and Applications (IJICA), Vol. 1, No. 1, 2007

Abstract: We present an investigation into constant creation in Grammatical Evolution (GE), a form of grammar-based Genetic Programming (GP). The methods for constant creation evaluated include digit Concatenation (Cat) and a grammatical version of ephemeral random constants called persistent random constants. Experiments conducted on a diverse range of benchmark problems uncover clear advantages for a digit Cat approach.
