  abstract =     "Phase transitions and critical phenomena occur not
                 only in thermodynamic systems but also in nonphysical
                 systems that occur in computation. Of particular
                 interest is the possibility that phase transitions
                 occur in GP search. If this were so, it would allow for
                 a statistical mechanics approach that would allow for
                 quantitative comparisons of GP with a broad variety of
                 rigorously described systems. This chapter summarises
                 our research group's work in this area and describes a
                 case study that illustrates what is involved in
                 establishing the existence of phase transitions in GP
