  abstract =     "An evolutionary system that supports the interaction
                 of neutral and adaptive mutations is investigated.
                 Experimental results on a Boolean function and
                 needle-in-haystack problems show that this system
                 enables evolutionary search to find better solutions
                 faster. Through a novel analysis based on the ratio of
                 neutral to adaptive mutations, we identify this
                 interaction as an engine that automatically adjusts the
                 relative amounts of exploration and exploitation to
                 achieve effective search (i.e., it is self-adaptive).
                 Moreover, a hypothesis to describe the search process
                 in this system is proposed and investigated. Our
                 findings lead us to counter the arguments of those who
                 dismiss the usefulness of neutrality. We argue that the
                 benefits of neutrality are intimately related to its
                 implementation, so that one must be cautious about
                 making general claims about its merits or demerits",
