  abstract =     "The process of learning is not always as simple as
                 mapping inputs to the best outputs. Often internal
                 state is needed to distinguish between observably
                 identical states of the world. Genetic programming has
                 concentrated on solving problems in the
                 functional/reactive arena, in part because of the
                 absence of a natural way to incorporate memory into the
                 paradigm. This paper presents a simple addition to the
                 genetic programming paradigm that seamlessly
                 incorporates the evolution of the effective gathering,
                 storage, and retrieval of arbitrarily complicated state
                 information. Experimental results show that the
                 effective production and use of complex state
                 structures can be evolved and that agents evolving the
                 use of memory quickly and permanently displace purely
                 reactive and non-deterministic functions. These results
                 may not only aid future research into the causes and
                 constituents of mental models but may expand the types
                 of problems that can be practically tackled by genetic
