Description

The aim of this course is to provide the fundamental basis for sound scientific methodology of performance evaluation of computer systems. This lecture emphasize on methodological aspects of measurement and on the statistics needed to analyze computer systems. We first sensibilize the audience to the importance of experiment and analysis reproducibility in particular in computer science. Then we present tools that help answering the analysis problem and may also reveal useful for managing the experimental process through notebooks. The audience will be given the basis of probabilities and statistics required to develop sound experiment designs. Unlike some other lectures, our goal is not to provide analysis recipes that people can readily apply but to make the audience truly understand some simple statistical tools on which they can build further.
