  abstract =     "This paper describes the use of a genetic search
                 method in the design of a command augmentation system
                 for a high-performance aircraft. A genetic algorithm is
                 used in the design of H-infinity controllers for the
                 longitudinal and lateral-directional channels by
                 selecting the weighting functions. The integral of
                 absolute value of error between the actual response and
                 that of an ideal model is used as the fitness
                 criterion, along with additional terms to penalise for
                 cross-coupling, non-minimum phase behaviour, and the
                 closed-loop infinity-norm bound. Starting from an
                 initial population of weighting functions, the
                 algorithm generates new functions with the goal of
                 improving the fitness. These controllers are then
                 evaluated in a 6 degree-of-freedom nonlinear model of
                 the aircraft.",
