Greetings!

I have a complex mathematical problem I'm working on right now. I have been given a list of variables and a final solution. My job is to find the formula that created the solution from those variables. (The formula doesn't have to contain all variables - in fact, in may need to only include 1 or 2, I don't know)

The variables:

a = 5.33

b = 6.51

c = 8

d = 1352

e = 94

f = 11.21

g = 11

h = 756

i = 117.47

j = 6.39

k = 0.8334

L = 5

M = 5.33

N = 5.32

O = 0

P = 1.15

Q = 5.06

R = 0.27

The Final Solution = 6.51

So how do these variables make up the final solution? Remember, it doesn't have to include all variables. The true number of variables is unknown since I don't know the formula.

Thanks!

Genetic programming (GP) is the best way to do that. If this is what you mean, let me know - I can give you a quick crash course in how to implement a GP algorithm for your problem.

And I have a fairly generalizable GP implementation sitting around - if you're interested, we could take a look at that.
