A genetic programming approach is utilised to develop mathematical models of chemical process systems. Having discussed genetic programming in general, two examples are used to reveal the utility of the technique. It is shown how the method can discriminate between relevant and irrelevant process inputs, evolving to yield parsimonious model structures that accurately represent process characteristics. This removes the need for restrictive assumptions about the form of the data and the structure of the required model. In addition, as the technique determines complex nonlinear relationships in the data, non-intuitive process features are revealed with comparative ease
