  genetic programming
      (GP) A programming technique which extends the
     genetic algorithm to the domain of whole computer programs.
     In GP, populations of programs are genetically bred to solve
     problems.  Genetic programming can solve problems of system
     identification, classification, control, robotics,
     optimisation, game playing, and pattern recognition.
     Starting with a primordial ooze of hundreds or thousands of
     randomly created programs composed of functions and terminals
     appropriate to the problem, the population is progressively
     evolved over a series of generations by applying the
     operations of Darwinian fitness proportionate reproduction and
     crossover (sexual recombination).
