  abstract =     "We investigate neutrality in the simple Genetic
                 Algorithms (SGA) and in our neutrality-enabled
                 evolutionary system using the OneMax problem. The
                 results show that with the support of limited
                 neutrality, SGA is less effective than our system where
                 a larger amount of neutrality is supported. In order to
                 understand the role of neutrality in evolutionary
                 search of this unimodal landscape, we have created a
                 theoretical framework that gives the number of gene
                 changes under different levels of neutrality. The
                 interim results of this theoretical work are also
