Stephanie Forrest and Melanie Mitchell have publised quite a few
papers on the general behavior of genetic algorithms.  They focus
on bit-string encoding schemes.  John Koza, at Stanford, has been
working with LISP-like parse trees as genetical encoding schemes.

A nice GA package, GASSY 2.0, is available via anonymous ftp from, in pub/gassy-2.0.tar.Z.  GASSY was 
written by Terry Jones, a graduate student at Indiana U.
