  abstract =     "Predictive models in direct marketing seek to identify
                 individuals most likely to respond to promotional
                 solicitations or other intervention programs. While
                 standard modelling approaches embody single objectives,
                 real-world decision problems often seek multiple
                 performance measures. Decision-makers here desire
                 solutions that simultaneously optimise on multiple
                 objectives, or obtain an acceptable tradeoff amongst
                 objectives. Multi-criteria problems often characterise
                 a range of solutions, none of which dominate the others
                 with respect to the multiple objectives - these specify
                 the Pareto-frontier of nondominated solutions, each
                 offering a different level of tradeoff. This paper
                 proposes the use of evolutionary computation based
                 procedures for obtaining a set of nondominated models
                 with respect to multiple stated objectives. The
                 targeting depth-of-file presents a crucial real-world
                 criterion in direct marketing, and models here are
                 tailored for specified file-depths. Decision-makers are
                 thus able to obtain a set of models along the
                 Pareto-frontier, for a specific file-depth. The choice
                 of a model to implement can be thus based on observed
                 tradeoffs in the different objectives, based on
                 possibly subjective and problem specific judgements.
                 Given distinct models tailored for different
                 file-depths, the implementation decision can also
                 consider performance tradeoffs at the different
                 depths-offile. Empirical results from a real-world
                 problem illustrate the benefits of the proposed
                 approach. Both linear and nonlinear models obtained by
                 genetic search are examined.",

                 be similar to those observed for the linear GA.
