  abstract =     "This paper describes how genetic programming was used
                 as an invention machine to automatically synthesise
                 complete designs for six optical lens systems that
                 duplicated the functionality of previously patented
                 lens systems. The automatic synthesis was done from
                 scratch that is, without starting from a pre-existing
                 good design and without pre-specifying the number of
                 lenses, the physical layout of the lenses, the
                 numerical parameters of the lenses, or the
                 non-numerical parameters of the lenses. One of the six
                 genetically evolved lens systems infringed a previously
                 issued patent; three contained many of the essential
                 features of the patents, without infringing; and the
                 others were non-infringing novel designs that
                 duplicated (or improved upon) the performance
                 specifications contained in the patents. One of the six
                 patents was issued in the 21st-century. The six designs
                 were created in a substantially similar and routine
                 way, suggesting that the approach used may have
                 widespread utility. The genetically evolved designs are
                 instances of human-competitive results produced by
                 genetic programming in the field of optical design.",
