  abstract =     "This paper presents experiments with genetically
                 engineered feature sets for recognition of on-line
                 handwritten characters. These representations stem from
                 a nondescript decomposition of the character frame into
                 a set of rectangular regions, possibly overlapping,
                 each represented by a vector of 7 fuzzy variables.
                 Efficient new feature sets are automatically discovered
                 using genetic programming techniques. Recognition
                 experiments conducted on isolated digits of the Unipen
                 database yield improvements of more than 3percent over
                 a previously manually designed representation where
                 region positions and sizes were fixed.",
