  abstract =     "Classification is one of the important tasks in
                 developing expert systems. Most of the previous
                 approaches for classification problem are based on
                 classification rules generated by decision trees. we
                 propose a new learning approach based on genetic
                 programming to generate discriminant functions for
                 classifying data. An adaptable incremental learning
                 strategy and a distance-based fitness function are
                 developed to improve the efficiency of genetic
                 programming-based learning process. We first transform
                 attributes of objects into fuzzy attributes and then a
                 set of discriminant functions is generated based on the
                 proposed learning procedure. The set of derived
                 functions with fuzzy attributes gives high accuracy of
                 classification and presents a linear form. Hence, the
                 functions can be transformed into inference rules
                 easily and we can use the rules to provide the building
                 of rule base in an expert system.",
