  abstract =     "This paper describes how the process of synthesizing
                 the design of both the topology and the numerical
                 parameter values (tuning) for a controller can be
                 automated by using genetic programming. Genetic
                 programming can be used to automatically make the
                 decisions concerning the total number of signal
                 processing blocks to be employed in a controller, the
                 type of each block, the topological interconnections
                 between the blocks, and the values of all parameters
                 for all blocks requiring parameters. In synthesizing
                 the design of controllers, genetic programming can
                 simultaneously optimize prespecified performance
                 metrics (such as minimizing the time required to bring
                 the plant output to the desired value), satisfy
                 time-domain constraints (such as overshoot and
                 disturbance rejection), and satisfy frequency domain
                 constraints. Evolutionary methods have the advantage of
                 not being encumbered by preconceptions that limit its
                 search to well-traveled paths. Genetic programming is
                 applied to an illustrative problem involving the design
                 of a controller for a three-lag plant with a
                 significant (five-second) time delay in the external
                 feedback from the plant to the controller. A delay in
                 the feedback makes the design of an effective
                 controller especially difficult.",
