  abstract =     "Finding intensional encapsulations of database subsets
                 is the inverse of query evaluation. Whereas query
                 evaluation transforms an intensional expression (the
                 query) to its extension (a set of data values),
                 intensional encapsulation assigns an intensional
                 expression to a given set of data values. We describe a
                 method for deriving intensional representations of
                 subsets of records in large database tables. Our method
                 is based on the paradigm of genetic programming. It is
                 shown to achieve high accuracy and maintain compact
                 expression size, while requiring cost that is
                 acceptable to all applications, but those that require
                 instantaneous results. Intensional encapsulation has a
                 broad range of applications including cooperative
                 answering, information integration, security and data
