  abstract =     "We report on a parallel implementation of a tool for
                 symbolic regression, the algorithmic mechanism of which
                 is based on genetic programming, and communication is
                 handled using MPI. The implementation relies on a
                 random islands model (RIM), which combines both the
                 conventional islands model where migration of
                 individuals between islands occurs periodically and
                 niching where no migration takes place. The system was
                 designed so that the algorithm is synergistic with
                 parallel/distributed architectures, and works to make
                 use of processor time and minimum use of network
                 bandwidth without complicating the sequential algorithm
                 significantly. Results on an IBM SP2 are included.",
