  abstract =     "In this chapter we present the application of a
                 genetic programming (GP) algorithm to the problem of
                 bankruptcy prediction. To carry out the research we
                 have used a database that includes extensive
                 information (not only economic) from the companies. In
                 order to handle the different data types we have used
                 Strongly Typed GP and variable reduction. Also, bloat
                 control has been implemented to obtain comprehensible
                 classification models. For comparison purposes we have
                 solved the same problem using a support vector machine
                 (SVM). GP has achieved very satisfactory results,
                 improving those obtained with the SVM.",
