  abstract =     "Friction systems are mechanical systems wherein
                 friction is used for force transmission (e.g.
                 mechanical braking systems or automatic gearboxes). For
                 finding optimal and safe design parameters, engineers
                 have to predict friction system performance. This is
                 especially difficult in real-worlds applications,
                 because it is affected by many parameters.

                 We have used symbolic regression and genetic
                 programming for finding accurate and trustworthy
                 prediction models for this task. However, it is not
                 straight-forward how nominal variables can be included.
                 In particular, a one-hot-encoding is unsatisfactory
                 because genetic programming tends to remove such
                 indicator variables. We have therefore used so-called
                 factor variables for representing nominal variables in
                 symbolic regression models. Our results show that GP is
                 able to produce symbolic regression models for
                 predicting friction performance with predictive
                 accuracy that is comparable to artificial neural
                 networks. The symbolic regression models with factor
                 variables are less complex than models using a one-hot
