  abstract =     "Genetic programming (GP) was initially developed to
                 allow the automatic creation of a computer program from
                 a high-level statement of a problem's requirements, by
                 means of an evolutionary process. In GP, a computer
                 program to solve a defined task is evolved from an
                 initial population of random computer programs. An
                 iterative evolutionary process is employed by GP, where
                 better (fitter) programs for the task at hand are
                 allowed to reproduce using recombination processes to
                 recombine components of existing programs. The
                 reproduction process is supplemented by incremental
                 trial-and-error development, and both
                 variety-generating mechanisms act to generate variants
                 of existing good programs. Over time, the utility of
                 the programs in the population improves as poorer
                 solutions to the problem are replaced by better
                 solutions. More generally, GP has been applied to
                 evolve a wide range of ‘structures' (and their
                 associated parameters) including electronic circuits,
                 mathematical models, engineering designs, etc.",
