  abstract =     "Anticorrelation has been used in training neural
                 network ensembles. Negative correlation learning (NCL)
                 is the state of the art anticorrelation measure. We
                 present an alternative anticorrelation measure,
                 RTQRTNCL, which shows significant improvements on our
                 test examples for both artificial neural networks (ANN)
                 and genetic programming (GP) learning machines. We
                 analyse the behaviour of the negative correlation
                 measure and derive a theoretical explanation of the
                 improved performance of RTQRTNCL in larger ensembles.",
