  abstract =     "In this chapter, genetic programming succeeded in
                 evolving both the topology and sizing of six different
                 prototypical analog electrical circuits, including a
                 lowpass filter, a highpass filter, a tri-state
                 frequency discriminator circuit, a 60 dB amplifier, a
                 computational circuit for the square root, and a
                 time-optimal robot controller circuit. All six of these
                 genetically evolved circuits constitute instances of an
                 evolutionary computation technique solving a problem
                 that is usually thought to require human intelligence.
                 There has previously been no general automated
                 technique for synthesizing an analog electrical circuit
                 from a high-level statement of the circuit's desired
                 behavior. The approach using genetic programming to the
                 problem of analog circuit synthesis is general; it can
                 be directly applied to other problems of analog circuit
                 synthesis. Each of the problems in this chapter
                 illustrates the automatic creation of a satisfactory
                 way of {"}how to do it{"} from a high-level statement
                 of {"}what needs to be done.{"}",
