The crossover closure generation rule characterizes the generalization achieved by artificial immune systems using partial match detection. The paper reviews earlier results and extends the previously introduced notion of crossover closure to encompass additional match rules. For concreteness, the discussion focuses on r-chunks matching, giving alternative ways that detectors can be used to implement the crossover closure.
