I think, you may interested with this one. One year ago, when I want to understand C, I decided to do a very naive experiment to compare some classical sort algorithms. If you interested, you can read it at here.
It is very naive by the way, but if you have better idea how do similar experiments, that would be great.
Cool! I'll give it a read. :) Was this a paper you wrote for school?
It just bonus assignment since a lecturer who teach algorithm course found that few of her student bored with the course (I think).
A mouth ago, I just realize that this empirical approach very useful in parallel programming. That's Gustavson Law that suggest us to use latency as benchmark.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
