  abstract =     "Symbolic regression is a common application for
                 genetic programming (GP). we present a new
                 non-evolutionary technique for symbolic regression
                 that, compared to competent GP approaches on real-world
                 problems, is orders of magnitude faster (taking just
                 seconds), returns simpler models, has comparable or
                 better prediction on unseen data, and converges
                 reliably and deterministically. I dub the approach FFX,
                 for Fast Function Extraction. FFX uses a recently
                 developed machine learning technique, pathwise
                 regularised learning, to rapidly prune a huge set of
                 candidate basis functions down to compact models. FFX
                 is verified on a broad set of real-world problems
                 having 13 to 1468 input variables, outperforming GP as
                 well as several state-of-the-art regression
