  abstract =     "Most analogue systems are designed manually because
                 automatic circuit synthesis tools are available for
                 only a limited range of design problems. A new approach
                 to circuit synthesis based on genetic algorithms is
                 presented. Using this method it is possible in
                 principle to synthesise circuits to meet any linear or
                 nonlinear, frequency-domain or time-domain,
                 specification. When applied to existing filter design
                 problems this circuit synthesis method produces design
                 solutions that are more efficient than those resulting
                 from formal design methods or created manually by an
                 experienced analogue circuit designer",

                 suitable topology and numerical optimisation to choose
                 component values is likely to be more efficient than
                 using a GA or GP to perform both functions.'
