  abstract =     "Evolutionary design of digital circuits has been well
                 established in recent years. Besides correct
                 functionality, the demands placed on current circuits
                 include the area of the circuit and its power
                 consumption. By relaxing the functionality requirement,
                 one can obtain more efficient circuits in terms of the
                 area or power consumption at the cost of an error
                 introduced to the output of the circuit. As a result, a
                 variety of trade-offs between error and efficiency can
                 be found. In this paper, a multi-objective evolutionary
                 algorithm for the design of approximate digital
                 circuits is proposed. The scalability of the
                 evolutionary design has been recently improved using
                 parallel implementation of the fitness function and by
                 employing spatially structured evolutionary algorithms.
                 The proposed multi-objective approach uses Cartesian
                 Genetic Programming for the circuit representation and
                 a modified NSGA-II algorithm. Multiple isolated islands
                 are evolving in parallel and the populations are
                 periodically merged and new populations are distributed
                 across the islands. The method is evaluated in the task
                 of approximate arithmetical circuits design.",
