  abstract =     "Multiple Objective Genetic Programming (MOGP) is a
                 promising stock-picking technique for fund managers,
                 because the Pareto front approximates the risk/reward
                 Efficient Frontier and simplifies the choice of
                 investment model for a given client's attitude to
                 risk.

                 Unfortunately GP solutions don't work well if used in
                 an environment that is different from the training
                 environment, and the financial markets are notoriously
                 unstable, often lurching from one market context to
                 another (e.g. {"}bull{"} to {"}bear{"}). This turns out
                 to be a hard problem -- simple dynamic adaptation
                 methods are insufficient and robust behaviour of
                 solutions becomes extremely important.

                 In this paper we provide the first known empirical
                 results on the robustness of MOGP solutions in an
                 unseen environment consisting of real-world financial
                 data. We focus on two well-known mechanisms to
                 determine which leads to the more robust solutions:
                 Mating Restriction, and Diversity Preservation. We
                 introduce novel metrics for Pareto front robustness,
                 and a novel variation on Mating Restriction, both based
                 on phenotypic cluster analysis.",
