  abstract =     "An evolutionary algorithm is used as an engine for
                 discovering new designs of digital circuits,
                 particularly arithmetic functions. These designs are
                 often radically different from those produced by
                 top-down, human, rule-based approaches. It is argued
                 that by studying evolved designs of gradually
                 increasing scale, one might be able to discern new,
                 efficient, and generalizable principles of design. The
                 ripple-carry adder principle is one such principle that
                 can be inferred from evolved designs for one and
                 two-bit adders. Novel evolved designs for three-bit
                 binary multipliers are given that are 20 percent more
                 efficient (in terms of number of two-input gates used)
                 than the most efficient known conventional design.",
