  abstract =     "In a project with which the author is involved, the
                 run-time efficiency of Tierra has become of paramount
                 importance. Whilst some optimisations can be applied to
                 the Tierra code itself, the speedup is at most two to
                 three times, with no benefits from vectorisation or
                 parallelisation being realised due to the structure of
                 the code. A new formulation of Tierra is proposed which
                 gains the computational efficiency of a population
                 model without sacrificing the advantages of an
                 individual model. This new formulation can take
                 advantage of parallelism when available. In some
                 preliminary tests, the new code is up to three orders
                 of magnitude faster than Tierra.",
