  abstract =     "We introduce a cooperative co-evolutionary system to
                 facilitate the development of teams of heterogeneous
                 agents. We believe that $k$ different behavioral
                 strategies for controlling the actions of a group of
                 $k$ agents can combine to form a cooperation strategy
                 which efficiently achieves global goals. We examine the
                 on-line adaption of behavioral strategies using genetic
                 programming. Specifically, we deal with the credit
                 assignment problem of how to fairly split the fitness
                 of a team to all of its participants. We present
                 several crossover mechanisms in a genetic programming
                 system to facilitate the evolution of more than one
                 member in the team during each crossover operation. Our
                 goal is to reduce the time needed to either evolve a
                 good team or reach convergence.",
