  abstract =     "We propose building neutral networks in
                 needle-in-haystack fitness landscapes to assist an
                 evolutionary algorithm to perform search. The
                 experimental results on four different problems show
                 that this approach improves the search success rates in
                 most cases. In situations where neutral networks do not
                 give performance improvement, no impairment occurs
                 either. We also tested a hypothesis proposed in our
                 previous work. The results support the hypothesis: when
                 the ratio of adaptive/neutral mutations during neutral
                 walk is close to that of fitness improvement step, the
                 evolutionary search has a high success rate. Moreover,
                 the ratio magnitudes indicate that more neutral
                 mutations (than adaptive mutations) are required for
                 the algorithms to find a solution in this type of
                 search space.",
