  abstract =     "Evolutionary algorithms and, in particular, Genetic
                 Programming (GP) are increasingly being applied to the
                 problem of evolving term-weighting schemes in
                 Information Retrieval (IR). One fundamental problem
                 with the solutions generated by these stochastic
                 processes is that they are often difficult to analyse.
                 A number of questions regarding these evolved
                 term-weighting schemes remain unanswered. One
                 interesting question is; do different runs of the GP
                 process bring us to similar points in the solution

                 This paper deals with determining a number of measures
                 of the distance between the ranked lists (phenotype)
                 returned by different term-weighting schemes. Using
                 these distance measures, we develop trees that show the
                 phenotypic distance between these termweighting
                 schemes. This framework gives us a representation of
                 where these evolved solutions lie in the solution

                 Finally, we evolve several global term-weighting
                 schemes and show that this framework is indeed useful
                 for determining the relative closeness of these schemes
                 and for determining the expected performance on general
                 test data.",
