The purpose of the tests from which these data are produced is verification of the
computer algorithms (and the implementing subprograms) employed to generate the con-
ditional probability calculations required by the primary simulation task reported in Sec-
tion 5.5. Thus, for example, all conditional probability distributions are uniform at a = 1
as is required by Eq. 4.14 and Eq. 4.24, and for a O0 all conditional probability
distributions approach the one-operator counterparts as is required by Eq. 4.17 and Eq.
4.27. Also, the two and three-operator conditional probabilities are identical for the uni-
form population case (Figures 5-3 and 5-5) as required by Eq. 4.18 and 4.28, and the
three-operator mixed population state case allows generation of solutions not present in
the current population even in the zero mutation probability limit.
