However, for many practical problems, one cannot begin a search for the set of numerical values until one first ascertains the number of numerical values that one is seeking. In fact, many practical problems of design and optimisation entail first discovering an entire graphical structure (that is, a topology). After the topology is identified, optimal (or near-optimal) numerical values can be sought for the elements of the structure. In this chapter, we will demonstrate that a biologically motivated algorithm (genetic programming) can automatically synthesise both a graphical structure (the topology) and a set of optimal or near-optimal numerical values for each element of analog electrical circuits, controllers, antennas, and networks of chemical reactions (metabolic pathways).", }
