  abstract =     "Production genetic algorithms is proposed to enable
                 grammar structure as well as hardware description
                 language (HDL) programs to evolve, toward an automated
                 hardware design system through an evolutionary process.
                 Evolutionary computation and methods make it possible
                 to design hardware that works in unknown and
                 non-stationary environments without explicit design
                 knowledge. In the proposed system, hardware
                 specifications, which produce circuit behaviours, are
                 automatically generated as HDL programs according to
                 the grammar defined as in a rewriting system and then
                 evolve through production genetic algorithms (PGAs),
                 also proposed here. The PGAs introduce new chromosome
                 representation and genetic operators to create
                 self-genesis mechanisms in hardware design similar to
                 living systems. An experimental result shows that
                 through an evolutionary process based on the PGAs, a
                 hardware specification program expands its circuit
                 scale and as a result increases its functionality",
