  abstract =     "We define a set of measures that capture some
                 different aspects of neutrality in evolutionary
                 algorithms fitness landscapes from a qualitative point
                 of view. If considered all together, these measures
                 offer a rather complete picture of the characteristics
                 of fitness landscapes bound to neutrality and may be
                 used as broad indicators of problem hardness. We
                 compare the results returned by these measures with the
                 ones of negative slope coefficient, a quantitative
                 measure of problem hardness that has been recently
                 defined and with success rate statistics on a well
                 known genetic programming benchmark: the multiplexer
                 problem. In order to efficaciously study the search
                 space, we use a sampling technique that has recently
                 been introduced and we show its suitability on this
