  1. Note
  2. 1: Random walk operator and Swap operator in Cons configuration, Random walk operator, Scale operator and Swap operator in Category configuration.
  3. 2: The operator introduced in Appendix section 4 is used in Cons configuration, a Scale operator is used in Category configuration.
  4. -: The parameter is not sampled and no operator is assigned.
