  abstract =     "This paper presents a technique to drastically reduce
                 the size of a population, while still maintaining
                 sufficient diversity for evolution. An advantage of a
                 reduced population size is the reduced number of
                 fitness evaluations necessary. In domains where
                 calculation of fitness values is expensive, this
                 results in a huge speedup of the search. Additionally,
                 in the experiments performed, smaller populations also
                 resulted in a faster convergence speed towards an
                 optimal solution.",
