  abstract =     "The Busy Beaver is an interesting theoretical problem
                 proposed by Rado in 1962. In this paper we propose an
                 evolutionary approach to this problem. We will focus on
                 the representational issues, proposing alternative ways
                 of codifying and interpreting Turing Machines. These
                 alternative representations take advantage of the
                 existence of equivalent Turing machine sets. The
                 experimental results show that the proposed
                 representations provide improvement over the standard
                 genetic codification.",

                 very small Turing machines.",
