Abstract

Using ecological domain knowledge, machine discovery systems can help human experts to generate models from measured data. In contrast with traditional modeling methods, which are used to identify parameter values of the model with prescribed structure, machine learning tools identify the structure of the model as well. In the paper, we present LAGRAMGE, an equation discovery system that uses context free grammars to define the space of possible model structures, and can also make use of domain specific background knowledge in the form of function definitions. We use LAGRAMGE to automate the model
