                 approach to synthesise estimators for the pointwise
                 Holder exponent in 2D signals. It is known that
                 irregularities and singularities are the most salient
                 and informative parts of a signal. Hence, explicitly
                 measuring these variations can be important in various
                 domains of signal processing. The point wise Holder
                 exponent provides a characterisation of these types of
                 features. However, current methods for estimation
                 cannot be considered to be optimal in any sense.
                 Therefore, the goal of this work is to automatically
                 synthesise operators that provide an estimation for the
                 Holderian regularity in a 2D signal. This goal is posed
                 as an optimisation problem in which we attempt to
                 minimize the error between a prescribed regularity and
                 the estimated regularity given by an image operator.
                 The search for optimal estimators is then carried out
                 using a GP algorithm. Experiments confirm that the
                 GP-operators produce a good estimation of the Holder
                 exponent in images of multifractional Brownian motions.
                 In fact, the evolved estimators significantly
                 outperform a traditional method by as much as one order
                 of magnitude. These results provide further empirical
                 evidence that GP can solve difficult problems of
                 applied mathematics.",
