abstract = "Given data in the form of a collection of (x,y) pairs
of real numbers, the symbolic function identification
problem is to find a functional model of the form y =
f(x) that fits the data. This paper describes a system
for solution of symbolic function identification
problems that combines a genetic algorithm and the
LevenbergMarquardt nonlinear regression algorithm. The
genetic algorithm uses an expressiontree
representation rather than the more usual binarystring
representation. Experiments were run with data
generated using a wide variety of function models. The
system was able to find a function model that closely
approximated the data with a very high success rate.",

notes = "Also available as technical report, 26 pages. Does
Symbolic regression but uses LevenbergMarquadt
statistical technique to adjust parameters to get
closer (equivalent of local hill climbing?) Some case
GP don't work on. Mentions Permutation but don't say
how usefully it is
