  abstract =     "This paper presents a new form of Genetic Programming
                 called Cartesian Genetic Programming in which a program
                 is represented as an indexed graph. The graph is
                 encoded in the form of a linear string of integers. The
                 inputs or terminal set and node outputs are numbered
                 sequentially. The node functions are also separately
                 numbered. The genotype is just a list of node
                 connections and functions. The genotype is then mapped
                 to an indexed graph that can be executed as a program.
                 Evolutionary algorithms are used to evolve the genotype
                 in a symbolic regression problem (sixth order
                 polynomial) and the Santa Fe Ant Trail. The
                 computational effort is calculated for both cases. It
                 is suggested that hit effort is a more reliable measure
                 of computational efficiency. A neutral search strategy
                 that allows the fittest genotype to be replaced by
                 another equally fit genotype (a neutral genotype) is
                 examined and compared with non-neutral search for the
                 Santa Fe ant problem. The neutral search proves to be
                 much more effective.",
