  abstract =     "This paper proposes a constrained-syntax genetic
                 programming (GP) algorithm for discovering
                 classification rules in medical data sets. The proposed
                 GP contains several syntactic constraints to be
                 enforced by the system using a disjunctive normal form
                 representation, so that individuals represent valid
                 rule sets that are easy to interpret. The GP is
                 compared with C4.5 in a real-world medical data set.
                 This data set represents a difficult classification
                 problem, and a new preprocessing method was devised for
                 mining the data",
