  abstract =     "We investigate double-auction (DA) market behaviour
                 under traders with different degrees of rationality
                 (intelligence or cognitive ability). The rationality of
                 decision making is implemented using genetic
                 programming (GP), where each trader evolves a
                 population of strategies to conduct an auction. By
                 assigning the GP traders different population sizes to
                 differentiate their cognitive ability, through a series
                 of simulations, we find that increasing the traders
                 intelligence improves the markets efficiency. However,
                 increasing the number of intelligent traders in the
                 market leads to a decline in the markets efficiency. By
                 analysing the individual GP traders strategies and
                 their co-evolution dynamics, we provide explanations to
                 these emerging market phenomena. While auction markets
                 are gaining popularity on the Internet, the insights
                 can help market designers devise robust and efficient
                 auction e-markets.",
