Preparing the books to read every day is enjoyable for many people. However, there are still many people who also don't like reading. This is a problem. But, when you can support others to start reading, it will be better. One of the books that can be recommended for new readers is genetic programming iii darwinian invention and problem solving. This book(More)
The design (synthesis) of analog electrical circuits starts with a highlevel statement of the circuit's desired behavior and requires creating a circuit that satisfies the specified design goals. Analog circuit synthesis entails the creation of both the topology and the sizing (numerical values) of all of the circuit's components. The difficulty of the(More)
This paper describes an automated process for designing electrical circuits in which "What You Want Is What You Get" ("WYWIWYG" – pronounced "wow-eee-wig"). The design process uses genetic programming to produce both the topology of the desired circuit and the sizing (numerical values) for all the components of a circuit. Genetic programming successfully(More)
Genetic programming is an automatic method for creating a computer program or other complex structure to solve a problem. This paper first reviews various instances where genetic programming has previously produced human-competitive results. It then presents new human-competitive results involving the automatic synthesis of the design of both the parameter(More)
This paper demonstrates the usefulness of automatically defined functions and architecture-altering operations in designing analog electrical circuits using genetic programming. A design for a lowpass filter is genetically evolved in which an automatically defined function is profitably reused in the 100% compliant circuit. The symmetric reuse of an evolved(More)
Recent work has demonstrated that genetic programming is capable of automatically creating complex networks (such as analog electrical circuits and controllers) whose behavior is modeled by linear and non-linear continuous-time differential equations and whose behavior matches prespecified output values. The concentrations of substances participating in(More)
It would be desirable if computers could solve problems without the need for a human to write the detailed programmatic steps. That is, it would be desirable to have a domainindependent automatic programming technique in which "What You Want Is What You Get" ("WYWIWYG" – pronounced "wow-eee-wig"). Genetic programming is such a technique. This paper surveys(More)
It has been previously established that genetic programming can be used as an automated invention machine to synthesize designs for complex structures. In particular, genetic programming has automatically synthesized structures that infringe, improve upon, or duplicate the functionality of 21 previously patented inventions (including six 21-century patented(More)
Most practical electrical circuits contain modular substructures that are repeatedly used to create the overall circuit. Genetic programming with automatically defined functions and architecture-altering operations successfully evolved a design for a two-band crossover (woofer and tweeter) filter with a crossover frequency of 2,512 Hz. Both the topology and(More)
