4 Binomial-3 and Random Polynomial Results

The results are evaluated to first validate the increase of difficulty across instances. Measures of entropy, edit distance diversity and size are examined and a general hypothesis is developed to explain what induces faster rates of code growth. The following section looks more closely at the correlation between growth and these measures.
