This research presents an evaluation of user defined domain specific functions of genetic programming using relational learning problems, generalisation for this class of learning problems and learning bias. After providing a brief theoretical background, two sets of experiments are detailed: experiments and results concerning the Monk-2 problem and experiments attempting to evolve generalising solutions to parity problems with incomplete data sets. The results suggest that using nonproblem
