  abstract =     "This case study describes a new approach to system
                 identification problems based on genetic programming
                 (GP), and presents an adaptive system called STROGANOFF
                 (structured representation on genetic algorithms for
                 nonlinear function fitting). STROGANOFF integrates an
                 adaptive search and a statistical method called group
                 method of data handling (GMDH). More precisely,
                 STROGANOFF consists of two processes: (i) the evolution
                 of structured representations using a traditional
                 genetic algorithm and (ii) the fitting of parameters of
                 the nodes with a multiple-regression analysis. The
                 fitness evaluation is based on a
                 minimum-description-length (MDL) criterion. Our
                 approach builds a bridge from traditional GP to a more
                 powerful search strategy. In other words, we introduce
                 a new approach to GP, by supplementing it with a local
                 hill climbing. The approach is successfully applied to
                 a time-series prediction.",
