  abstract =     "Binary Decision Diagrams (BDDs) have become the data
                 structure of choice for representing discrete functions
                 in some design and verification applications: They are
                 compact and efficient to manipulate with strong
                 theoretical underpinnings. However, and despite many
                 appealing characteristics, BDDs are not a
                 representation commonly considered for evolutionary
                 computation (EC). The inherent difficulties associated
                 with evolving graphs combined with the variable
                 ordering problem poses a significant challenge which is
                 yet to be overcome. This work addresses this challenge
                 and presents a new approach to evolving BDDs that
                 exhibits good variable orderings as an emergent
