Presenting experimental results and comparing with theory

We have prepared an example (in PostScript and PDF) that shows how you can present experimental results and compare them with theoretical predictions. We want you to use a similar style in your garbage-collection homework.

Some students have reported great difficulty (and a great waste of time) trying to make Excel produce reasonable graphs. We recommend using Jgraph for graphs; our sample graphs are available.

If you compile Jgraph from sources, be sure to set -DLCC as described in the Makefile. If you do not, you will get mysterious failures when you try to view Jgraph's output.
