  abstract =     "This paper suggests a method for automatically
                 synthesizing designs for mechatronic systems. The
                 domain of mechatronic systems includes mixtures of, for
                 example, electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic,
                 and thermal components, making it difficult to design a
                 system to meet specified performance goals with a
                 single design tool. Bond graphs are domain independent,
                 allow free composition, and are efficient for
                 classification and analysis of models, allowing rapid
                 determination of various types of acceptability or
                 feasibility of candidate designs (Karnopp et al). This
                 can sharply reduce the time needed for analysis of
                 designs that are infeasible or otherwise unattractive.
                 Genetic programming is well recognized as a powerful
                 tool for open-ended search (Koza et al). The
                 combination of these two powerful methods is therefore
                 an appropriate target for a better system for synthesis
                 of complex multi-domain systems. The approach described
                 here will evolve new designs (represented as bond
                 graphs) with ever-improving performance, in an
                 iterative loop of synthesis, analysis, and feedback to
                 the synthesis process.",
