The development of board evaluation functions for complex strategy games has been approached in a variety of ways. The analysis of game interactions is recognized as a valid analogy to common real-world problems, which often present difficulty in designing algorithms to solve them. Genetic programming, as a branch of evolutionary computation,provides advantages over traditional algorithms in solving these complex real-world problems in speed, robustness and flexibility. This thesis attempts to a
