  abstract =     "Genetic Programming offers freedom in the definition
                 of the cost function that is unparalleled among
                 supervised learning algorithms. However, this freedom
                 goes largely unexploited in previous work. Here, we
                 revisit the design of fitness functions for genetic
                 programming by explicitly considering the contribution
                 of the wrapper and cost function. Within the context of
                 supervised learning, as applied to classification
                 problems, a clustering methodology is introduced using
                 cost functions which encourage maximization of
                 separation between in and out of class exemplars.
                 Through a series of empirical investigations of the
                 nature of these functions, we demonstrate that
                 classifier performance is much more dependable than
                 previously the case under the genetic programming
