This paper describes how genetic programming was used as an invention machine to automatically synthesize complete designs for six optical lens systems that duplicated the functionality of previously patented lens systems. The automatic synthesis was done "from scratch"-that is, without starting from a pre-existing good design and without pre-specifying the(More)
This paper describes the use of genetic programming to automatically synthesize the design for a fixed-length loaded symmetric dipole antenna whose gain at a specific wavelength exceeds that of a commercially-marketed human-designed antenna and that reaches the theoretical maximum value for an antenna of its type. The run of genetic programming started(More)
This paper has two aspects. First, it describes the use of genetic programming to automatically synthesize a solution to the challenge problem posed at an international competition held every four years in the field of optical design. In 2002, the competition at the International Optical Design Conference attracted 42 entries from 39 well-known optical(More)
