                 in particular are increasingly being applied to the
                 problem of evolving term-weighting schemes in
                 Information Retrieval (IR). One fundamental problem
                 with the solutions generated by this stochastic,
                 non-deterministic process is that they are often
                 difficult to analyse. We develop a number of different
                 distance measures between the phenotypes (ranked lists)
                 of the solutions (term-weighting schemes) returned by a
                 GP process. Using these distance measures, we develop
                 trees which show how different solutions are clustered
                 in the solution space. Using this framework we show
                 that our evolved solutions lie in a different part of
                 the solution space than two of the best benchmark
                 term-weighting schemes available.",
