  abstract =     "In this paper, a novel method based on graph encoding
                 scheme and clone selection algorithm is proposed for
                 synthesising passive analog filters. Graph is the most
                 natural and convenient data structure to represent
                 analog electronic circuit. The proposed graph-based
                 encoding scheme can represent any topologies of passive
                 analog circuit and their component values. Combined
                 with the efficient analog circuit encoding scheme,
                 clone selection algorithm is employed as a search
                 engine for automatic design of passive analog filters.
                 The proposed method can synthesise both topology and
                 sizing (component parameters) of circuit
                 simultaneously. Three filter design tasks are
                 experimented to evaluate the proposed method. The
                 experimental results demonstrate that passive analog
                 filters can be generated effectively with modest
                 computation time. Taking more practical conditions into
                 account, the proposed method can be applied into
                 automatic design of passive analog filters for
                 engineering application without the guidance of
                 experienced engineers.",
