  abstract =     "An investigation was undertaken of the field of
                 Genetic Programming, an offshoot of Genetic Algorithms.
                 The GP system was implemented in Emacs Lisp. Study was
                 undertaken of three alternative methods of GP - the
                 original method, the Stack system and the Pygmy
                 Algorithm. The implementation of the Stack system was
                 shown to suffer from premature convergence; that of the
                 Pygmy Algorithm was shown under certain conditions to
                 be superior to the original method.

                 A novel problem, that of generating mazes, was
                 implemented and shown to be capable of solution by the
                 GP system and by the Pygmy Algorithm.",
