  abstract =     "We present a novel multivariate classification
                 technique based on Genetic Programming. The technique
                 is distinct from Genetic Algorithms and offers several
                 advantages compared to Neural Networks and Support
                 Vector Machines. The technique optimises a set of
                 human-readable classifiers with respect to some
                 user-defined performance measure. We calculate the
                 Vapnik-Chervonenkis dimension of this class of learning
                 machines and consider a practical example: the search
                 for the Standard Model Higgs Boson at the LHC. The
                 resulting classifier is very fast to evaluate,
                 human-readable, and easily portable. The software may

                 sensitive to the size penalty of mutation rates{"}.",
