  abstract =     "This paper presents the results of an investigative
                 study into the evolution of cellular automata
                 replicators using Genetic Programming (GP) techniques
                 (i.e. using Genetic Algorithms (GAs) to build/evolve
                 complex systems). There are at least two reasons why
                 such a study might be considered interesting. One
                 reason is to explore how difficult the evolution of
                 (CA) replicators might be, a topic of importance for
                 Artificial Life. Another reason is the possibility that
                 the evolution of CAs, if successful, may provide tools
                 for next-generation quantum-electronic computers (e.g.
                 using quantum dot arrays) which may use CAs as their
                 operating principle.",
