  abstract =     "In designing non-linear classifiers, there are
                 important trade-offs to be made between predictive
                 accuracy and model comprehensibility or complexity. We
                 introduce the use of Genetic Programming to generate
                 logistic polynomial models, a relatively comprehensible
                 non-linear parametric model; describe an efficient
                 twostage algorithm consisting of GP structure design
                 and Quasi-Newton coefficient setting; demonstrate that
                 Niched Pareto Multiobjective Genetic Programming can be
                 used to discover a range of classifiers with different
                 complexity versus 'performance' trade-offs; introduce a
                 technique to integrate a new 'ROC (Receiver Operating
                 Characteristic) dominance' concept into the
                 multiobjective setting; and suggest some modifications
                 to the Niched Pareto GA for use in Genetic Programming.
                 The technique successfully generates classifiers with
                 diverse complexity and performance characteristics.",
