  abstract =     "For centuries, the study of prime numbers has been
                 regarded as a subject of pure mathematics in number
                 theory. Recently, this vision has changed and the
                 importance of prime numbers has increased rapidly,
                 especially in information technology, e.g., public key
                 cryptography algorithms, hash tables, and pseudo-random
                 number generators. One of the most popular topics to
                 attract attention is to find a formula that maps the
                 set of natural numbers into the set of prime numbers.
                 However, to date there is no known formula that
                 produces all primes. In this article, we use a hybrid
                 evolutionary algorithm, called the memetic programming
                 (MP) algorithm, to generate mathematical formulae that
                 produce distinct primes. Using the MP algorithm, we
                 succeeded in discovering an interesting set of formulas
                 that produce sets of distinct primes.",
