Many papers appearing in journals reporting computational experiments use computer generated evidence to compare or rank competing mathematical software techmques. Unfortunately, to date there have been no standards or guidelines mdicatmg how computer experiments should be conducted or how the results should be presented. An imtial attempt IS made to rectify this situation, and a summary of unportant pomts which should be considered when wntmg or evaluating a paper m which computational results are reported is provided.
