  abstract =     "Many mathematical algorithms are capable of solving
                 problems by producing optimal (or near-optimal)
                 numerical values for a prespecified set of parameters.
                 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).",
