When observing program performances in practice, one could be faced to
non-negligible variations, even if program input is fixed. When
considering multiple code versions issued from many program
transformation chains, it is not easy to select the best code version
in presence of these performance variations.
In this seminar, we will tackle some rigorous statistical methods for
selecting a practically most efficient code by choosing appropriate
metrics of performances. We will recall some basis on statistical
testing, the most popular ones, and explain why they could not be
always helpful. Then we show a parametric approach for performance
analysis and comparison and explain its difference with a
non-parametric one. This seminar is devoted to people willing to use
rigorous statistics to take cautious decisions to declare if a program
is more efficient than others.
This research effort has been conducted with Julien Worms, an
associate professor in mathematics at University of Versailles Saint
Quentin en Yvelines.
