  abstract =     "We argue that higher order mutants are potentially
                 better able to simulate real faults and to reveal
                 insights into bugs than the restricted class of first
                 order mutants. the Mutation Testing community has
                 previously shied away from Higher Order Mutation
                 Testing believing it to be too expensive and therefore
                 impractical. However, this paper argues that Search
                 Based Software Engineering can provide a solution to
                 this apparent problem, citing results from recent work
                 on search based optimization techniques for
                 constructing higher order mutants. We also present a
                 research agenda for the development of Higher Order
                 Mutation Testing.",
