Often I come across the following situation: I have some experimental evaluation of running times of a new algorithm. Printing the running times in a table is good. Adding a plotted diagram illustrates the results in a nice way. Unfortunately this brings redundancy in a publication and needs many space, because the runnings times are already listed in the table.
Which way is best practice?
- Only print a table (precise results, but no illustration)
- Only print a plotted diagram (none precise results, but illustration)
- Both (precise and illustration, but redundancy)
