Additional Information:Learning Classifier Systems (LCS) are an evolutionary computing-based form of reinforcement learner. They were originally presented by John Holland shortly after his genetic algorithm in 1976. In 1995 a new form of LCS was presented and Holland's approach was much criticised. This paper presents formal and experimental results showing how such criticism is incorrect. Specifically, the use of fitness sharing avoids the propogation of inaccurate generalizations in the input space. The result has maintained research with Holland's system which have been showed better able to learn in noisy domains than the newer forms, for example. The work was undertaken as part of a PhD studentship funded by BT Labs.
