Abstract

This paper presents methods to visualize the structure of trees that occur in genetic programming. These methods allow for the inspection of structure of entire trees of arbitrary size. The methods also scale to allow for the inspection of structure for an entire population. Examples are given from a typical problem. The examples indicate further studies that might be enabled by visualizing structure at these scales.
