  abstract =     "This paper describes an approach to the use of genetic
                 programming for object detection problems. In this
                 approach, local region pixel statistics are used to
                 form three terminal sets. The function set is
                 constructed by the four standard arithmetic operators
                 and a conditional operator. A multi-objective fitness
                 function is constructed based on detection rate, false
                 alarm rate, false alarm area and program size. This
                 approach is applied to three object detection problems
                 of increasing difficulty. The results suggest that the
                 concentric circular pixel statistics are more effective
                 than the square features for the coin detection
                 problems. The fitness function with program size is
                 more effective and more efficient for these object
                 detection problems and the evolved genetic programs
                 using this fitness function are much shorter and easier
                 to interpret.",
