  abstract =     "Genetic programming is applied to an information
                 retrieval system to improve Boolean query formulation
                 via relevance feedback. Documents are viewed as vectors
                 in term space. A Boolean query is a chromosome in the
                 genetic programming sense. Through the mechanisms of
                 genetic programming, the query is modified to improve
                 precision and recall. Relevance feedback is
                 incorporated via user-defined measures over a trial set
                 of documents. The fitness of a candidate query can be
                 expressed as a function of the relevance of the
                 retrieved set. Preliminary results based on a test bed
                 are given. The form of the fitness function has
                 significant effect and the proper fitness functions
                 take into account relevance based on topicality (and
                 perhaps other factors).",
