  abstract =     "This paper deals with the problem of discovering
                 subgroups in data by means of a grammar guided genetic
                 programming algorithm, each subgroup including a set of
                 related patterns. The proposed algorithm combines the
                 requirements of discovering comprehensible rules with
                 the ability of mining expressive and flexible solutions
                 thanks to the use of a context-free grammar. A major
                 characteristic of this algorithm is the small number of
                 parameters required, so the mining process is easy for

                 The algorithm proposed is compared with existing
                 subgroup discovery evolutionary algorithms. The
                 experimental results reveal the excellent behaviour of
                 this algorithm, discovering comprehensible subgroups
                 and behaving better than the other algorithms. The
                 conclusions obtained were reinforced through a series
                 of non-parametric tests.",
