  abstract =     "A genetic algorithm is a form of evolution that occurs
                 on a computer. Genetic algorithms are a search method
                 that can be used for both solving problems and
                 modelling evolutionary systems. With various mapping
                 techniques and an appropriate measure of fitness, a
                 genetic algorithm can be tailored to evolve a solution
                 for many types of problems, including optimisation of a
                 function of determination of the proper order of a
                 sequence. Mathematical analysis has begun to explain
                 how genetic algorithms work and how best to use them.
                 Recently, genetic algorithms have been used to model
                 several natural evolutionary systems, including immune
