  abstract =     "Fast process optimisation is a challenge. Processes
                 are often complex and the intricate simulators written
                 to solve them can take hours or days per simulation to
                 run. Optimization techniques that require many calls to
                 a simulator can take days or months to solve. While
                 advances in optimisation algorithms, such as the outer
                 approximation method have reduced the solution time by
                 a factor of ten or more when compared to other methods,
                 long solutions times still can occur. This work
                 explores the development of simulating a simulator to
                 enable optimal solution development in an accelerated
                 time frame. The technique used to develop the simulated
                 simulator is linear genetic programming (LGP). LGP
                 approximated a complex industrial process simulator
                 that took hours to execute per run with a high fitness
                 program - applied (testing) data set R2 fitness of
                 0.989. The LGP solution executes in less than a second.
                 This success opens up the possibility of optimising
                 functions faster using these LGP derived high fitness
                 simulator approximations. Since the LGP simulated
                 process simulator now executes in less than a second,
                 as opposed to hours, using an intensive multiple call
                 optimisation technique such as genetic algorithms and
                 evolutionary strategies is now also feasible.",
