  abstract =     "Simple genetic algorithm optimisations often use
                 fixed-length chromosomes containing a predefined set of
                 parameters to be optimized. While such algorithms have
                 successfully created electrically small narrow-band and
                 large wide-band military antennas, they require the
                 antenna designer to have a fairly concrete antenna
                 representation prior to exercising the genetic
                 algorithm. In this research we investigate the use of
                 genetic programming (GP) techniques to 'program' the
                 design of simple thin-wire antennas. Genetic
                 programming techniques offer the potential to create
                 random, multi-arm, multi-dimension antennas from
                 variable length, tree-like chromosomes. We present a
                 new genetic programming paradigm for creating
                 multi-branched, thin-wire, genetic antennas and
                 describe how GP commands are represented and decoded
                 into physical antenna structures. We present
                 preliminary results obtained from this algorithm
                 showing evolutions along Pareto fronts representing
                 antenna electrical size, VSWR, and antenna quality
                 factor (Q).",
