Cartesian genetic programming
Cartesian genetic programming is a form of genetic programming, which uses a graph representation to encode computer programs. It grew from a method of evolving digital circuits developed by Miller et al. in 1997. However the term ‘Cartesian genetic programming’ first appeared in 1999 and was proposed as a general form of genetic programming in 2000. It is called ‘Cartesian’ because it represents a program using a two-dimensional grid of nodes.
Julian F. Miller (the inventor of CGP) has a web site which explains how CGP works. You can download many publications about CGP from this site. He also edited a book titled 'Cartesian Genetic Programming', published in 2011 by Springer.
