                 method to develop a framework in which a class of
                 fitness measures is introduced for dealing with
                 problems of parsimony based on the minimum description
                 length (MDL) principle (Rissanen 1986). We then
                 describe an adaptive technique for putting this fitness
                 function into practice.",
