abstract = "The task of surface reconstruction is to find a
mathematical representation of a surface which is given
only by a set of discrete sampling points. The
mathematical description in the computer allows to save
or transfer the geometric data via internet, to
manipulate (e.g. for aerodynamic or design specific
reasons) or to optimize the machining of the work
pieces. The reconstruction of the shape of an object is
a difficult mathematical and computer scientific
problem. For this reason a GP/EShybrid algorithm has
been used. Due to the high complexity of the problem
and in order to speed up the reconstruction process,
the algorithm has been enhanced to work as a
multipopulation GP/ES that runs in parallel on a
network of standard PCs.",
