  abstract =     "We automatically generate mutation operators for
                 Genetic Algorithms (GA) and tune them to problem
                 instances drawn from a given problem class. By so
                 doing, we perform metalearning in which the base-level
                 contains GAs (which learn about problem instances), and
                 the meta-level contains GAmutation operators (which
                 learn about problem classes). We use Register Machines
                 to explore a constrained design space for mutation
                 operators. We show how two commonly used mutation
                 operators (viz. one-point and uniform mutation) can be
                 expressed in this framework. Iterated local search is
                 used to search the space of mutation operators, and on
                 a test-bed of 7 problem classes we identify
                 machine-designed mutation operators which outperform
                 their human counterparts.",
