  abstract =     "Decision trees are a well known technique in machine
                 learning for describing the underlying structure of a
                 dataset. In [Bot and Langdon, 2000] a new
                 representation of decision trees using strong typing in
                 GP was introduced. In the function nodes, a linear
                 combination of variables is made. The effects of
                 techniques such as limited error fitness, fitness
                 sharing Pareto scoring and domination Pareto scoring
                 are evaluated on a set of benchmark classification
                 problems. Comparisons with current state-of-the-art
                 algorithms in machine learning are presented and areas
                 of future research are identified. Results indicate
                 that GP can be applied successfully to classification
                 problems. Limited error fitness reduces runtime while
                 maintaing equal accuracy. Pareto scoring works well
                 against bloat. Fitness sharing Pareto works better than
                 domination Pareto.",
