  abstract =     "This paper addresses the application of Genetic
                 Programming (GP) to the synthesis of heat-integrated
                 complex distillation system and the flowsheet of
                 complex separation can be expressed directly using GP's
                 special hierarchical structure. A series of unique
                 encoding method and solution strategy is proposed and
                 some evolutionary factor is improved based on the
                 domain knowledge of chemical engineering. A shortcut
                 method is applied to calculate all required design
                 parameters. Conventional and complex columns, thermally
                 coupled (linked) side strippers and side rectifiers,
                 fully thermally coupled columns as well as heat
                 integration between any different columns are
                 simultaneously considered. Two illustrating examples
                 are presented to demonstrate the effective
                 computational strategies.",
