  abstract =     "Genetic algorithms (GA) has given rise to two new
                 fields of research where (global) optimisation is of
                 crucial importance: 'genetic based machine learning'
                 (GBML) and 'genetic programming' (GP). An introduction
                 by the authors to GA and GBML was given in two previous
                 papers (Eng. Appl. Artif. Intell. 9(6) (1996) 681; Eng.
                 Appl. Artif. Intell. 13(4) (2000) 381). the last domain
                 (GP) will be introduced, thereby making up a trilogy
                 which gives a general overview of the whole field. In
                 this third part, an overview will be given of the basic
                 concepts of GP as defined by Koza. A first
                 (educational) example of GP is given by solving a
                 simple symbolic regression of a sinus function.
                 Finally, a more complex application is presented in
                 which GP is used to construct the mathematical
                 equations for an industrial process. To this end, the
                 case study 'fibre-to-yarn production process' is
                 introduced. The goal of this study is the automatic
                 development of mathematical equations for the
                 prediction of spinnability and (possible) resulting
                 yarn strength. It is shown that (relatively) simple
                 equations can be obtained which describe accurately 90%
                 of the fibre-to-yarn database.",
