  abstract =     "Negative slope coefficient has been recently
                 introduced and empirically proven a suitable hardness
                 indicator for some well known genetic programming
                 benchmarks, such as the even parity problem, the
                 binomial-3 and the artificial ant on the Santa Fe
                 trail. Nevertheless, the original definition of this
                 measure contains several limitations. This paper points
                 out some of those limitations, presents a new and more
                 relevant definition of the negative slope coefficient
                 and empirically shows the suitability of this new
                 definition as a hardness measure for some genetic
                 programming benchmarks, including the multiplexer, the
                 intertwined spirals problem and the royal trees.",
