  abstract =     "We propose a genetic programming (GP) system for
                 measuring the relevance of subsets of features in
                 binary classification tasks. A virtual program
                 structure and an evaluation function are defined in a
                 way that constructed GP programs can measure the
                 goodness of subsets of features. The proposed system
                 can detect relevant subsets of features in different
                 situations including multimodal class distributions and
                 mutually correlated features where other ranking
                 methods have difficulties. Our empirical results
                 indicate that the proposed system is good at ranking
                 subsets and giving insight into the actual
                 classification performance. The proposed ranking system
                 is also efficient in terms of feature selection.",
