  abstract =     "A mathematical formula containing one or more free
                 variables is {"}general{"} in the sense that it
                 represents the solution to all instances of a problem
                 (instead of just the solution of a single instance of
                 the problem). For example, the familiar formula for
                 solving a quadratic equation contains free variables
                 representing the coefficients of the to-be-solved
                 equation. This paper demonstrates, using an
                 illustrative problem, that genetic programming can
                 automatically create the design for both the topology
                 and component values for an analog electrical circuit
                 in which the value of each component in the evolved
                 circuit is specified by a mathematical expression
                 containing a free variable. That is, genetic
                 programming is used to evolve a general parameterized
                 circuit that satisfies the problem's high-level
                 requirements. The evolved circuit has been
                 cross-validated on unseen values of the free
