                 computation technology is discussed. Thin sections of
                 mineral samples are photographed digitally using a
                 computer-controlled rotating polarizer stage on a
                 petrographic microscope. A suite of image processing
                 functions is applied to the images. Filtered image data
                 for identified mineral grains is then selected for use
                 as training data for a genetic programming system,
                 which automatically synthesizes computer programs that
                 identify these grains. The evolved programs use a
                 decision tree structure that compares the mineral image
                 values with one other, resulting in a thresholding
                 analysis of the multi-dimensional colour and textural
                 space of the mineral images",
