  abstract =     "This chapter describes how genetic programming was
                 used as an invention machine to automatically
                 synthesise a complete design for an aspherical optical
                 lens system (a type of lens system that is especially
                 difficult to design and that offers advantages in terms
                 of cost, weight, size, and performance over traditional
                 spherical systems). The genetically evolved aspherical
                 lens system duplicated the functionality of a recently
                 patented aspherical system. The automatic synthesis was
                 open-ended --- that is, the process did not start from
                 a pre-existing good design and did not pre-specify the
                 number of lenses, which lenses (if any) should be
                 spherical or aspherical, the topological arrangement of
                 the lenses, the numerical parameters of the lenses, or
                 the non-numerical parameters of the lenses. The
                 genetically evolved design is an instance of
                 human-competitive results produced by genetic
                 programming in the field of optical design.",
