  abstract =     "We are applying genetic programming, an evolutionary
                 programming technique, to identifying the minerals in
                 spectra of asteroids from telescopes. We have done a
                 basic feasibility test of this new identifier concept
                 using US Geological Survey (USGS) spectra of three
                 terrestrial minerals likely to be present in low-albedo
                 asteroid regoliths: Antigorite, Hematite, and Jarosite.
                 Initial results are very promising. Functions produced
                 by genetic programming correctly identify 96percent of
                 140 spectra corrupted by measurement noise, scale
                 uncertainty, and background continua removal
