In this paper we continue the work on symbolic fuzzy regression problems. That means that we are interested in finding a fuzzy function f, which best matches given data pairs (X i,Y i ) 1 ≤ik of fuzzy numbers. We use a genetic programming approach for finding a suitable fuzzy function and will present test results about linear, quadratic and cubic fuzzy functions.
