1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Not really homework, but I couldn't find a better place to ask. I found an interesting paper and I'd like to test out the ideas it contains, since the code is available for free. The paper is "Evolving Fractal Gene Regulatory Networks for Robot Control". While the "test" problem was robot control, I'd like to use something simpler. 2. Question What would be a proper benchmark problem, simpler then robot control? Would be best if a couple of problems were suggested. 3. The attempt at a solution I thought it would be possible to use the lorenz system, or chirikovs map, or inverted pendulum, or flight stability - dynamical problems. What else would be good? P.S. If this topic is misplaced, could a mod please move it to a proper place? Thank you.
