  abstract =     "Fitness evaluation is often a time consuming activity
                 in genetic programming applications and it is thus of
                 interest to find criteria that can help in reducing the
                 time without compromising the quality of the results.
                 We use well-known results in statistics and information
                 theory to limit the number of fitness cases that are
                 needed for reliable function reconstruction in genetic
                 programming. By using two numerical examples, we show
                 that the results agree with our theoretical
                 predictions. Since our approach is problem-independent,
                 it can be used together with techniques for choosing an
                 efficient set of fitness cases.",
