  abstract =     "Term weighting schemes play a vital role in the
                 performance of many Information Retrieval models. The
                 vector space model is one such model in which the
                 weights applied to the document terms are of crucial
                 importance to the accuracy of the retrieval system.
                 This paper outlines a procedure using genetic
                 programming to automatically determine term weighting
                 schemes that achieve a high average precision. The
                 schemes are tested on standard test collections and are
                 shown to perform consistently better than the
                 traditional tf-idf weighting schemes. We present an
                 analysis of the evolved weighting schemes to explain
                 their increase in performance. These term weighting
                 schemes are shown to be general across various
                 collections and are shown to adhere to Luhn's theory as
                 both high and low frequency terms are assigned a low
                 weight.",
