  abstract =     "An investigation of the role of the genotype-phenotype
                 mapping (G-Pm) is presented for an evolutionary
                 optimisation task. A simple genetic algorithm (SGA)
                 plus a mapping creates a new mapping genetic algorithm
                 (MGA) that is used to optimize a Boolean decision tree
                 for an information retrieval task, with the tree being
                 created via a relatively complex mapping. Its
                 performance is contrasted with that of a genetic
                 programming algorithm, British Telecom Genetic
                 Programming (BTGP) which operates directly on
                 phenotypic trees. The mapping is observed to play an
                 important role in the time evolution of the system
                 allowing the MGA to achieve better results than the
                 BTGP. We conclude that an appropriate G-Pm can improve
                 the evolvability of evolutionary algorithms.",
