  abstract =     "The synthesis of stochastic processes using genetic
                 programming is investigated. Stochastic process
                 behaviours take the form of time series data, in which
                 quantities of interest vary over time in a
                 probabilistic, and often noisy, manner. A suite of
                 statistical feature tests are performed on time series
                 plots from example processes, and the resulting feature
                 values are used as targets during evolutionary search.
                 A process algebra, the stochastic pi-calculus, is used
                 to denote processes. Investigations consider variations
                 of GP representations for a subset of the stochastic
                 pi-calculus, for example, the use of channel
                 unification, and various grammatical constraints.
                 Target processes of varying complexity are studied.
                 Results show that the use of grammatical GP with
                 statistical feature tests can successfully synthesize
                 stochastic processes. Success depends upon a selection
                 of appropriate feature tests for characterizing the
                 target behaviour, and the complexity of the target
