  abstract =     "In an evolutionary system, robustness describes the
                 resilience to mutational and environmental changes,
                 whereas evolvability captures the capability of
                 generating novel and adaptive phenotypes. The research
                 literature has not seen an effective quantification of
                 phenotypic evolvability able to predict the
                 evolutionary potential of the search for novel
                 phenotypes. In this study, we propose to characterize
                 the mutational potential among different phenotypes
                 using the phenotype network, where vertices are
                 phenotypes and edges represent mutational connections
                 between them. In the framework of such a network, we
                 quantitatively analyse the evolvability of phenotypes
                 by exploring a number of vertex centrality measures
                 commonly used in complex networks. In our simulation
                 studies we use a Linear Genetic Programming system and
                 a population of random walkers. Our results suggest
                 that the weighted eigenvector centrality serves as the
                 best estimator of phenotypic evolvability.",
