  abstract =     "Feature construction using genetic programming is
                 carried out to study the effect on the performance of a
                 range of classification algorithms with the inclusion
                 of the evolved attributes. Two different fitness
                 functions are used in the genetic program, one based on
                 information gain and the other based on the gini index.
                 The classification algorithms used are three
                 classification tree algorithms, namely C5, CART, CHAID
                 and an MLP neural network. The intention of the
                 research is to ascertain if the decision tree
                 classification algorithms benefit more using features
                 constructed using a genetic programme whose fitness
                 function incorporates the same fundamental learning
                 mechanism as the splitting criteria of the associated
                 decision tree.",
