I am performing experiments on randomized algorithms, and want to do it scientifically sound.
What relative standard error of mean (RSEM) is acceptable? I know that often RSEM<30% or RSEM<25% is used, but does that also apply for randomized algorithms?
What paper/book can I cite that give a reliability standard? This would optimally be a standard for the field of computer science or randomized algorithms, but a general reliability standard would be fine, too.
Details: I only found
- http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/statnt/statnt24.pdf, which unfortunately is only for the health sector;
- http://scholar.google.de/scholar?cluster=1360212642214424308&hl=en&as_sdt=0,5 covering statistics for randomized algorithms, but it unfortunately does not mention standard errors.
