While Koza's computational effort statistic attempts to answer this problem, it is a point statistic and has other statistical problems. We present the y-test, a statistical test which takes as input a set of outcomes from the observed runs of two processes A and B. The y-test synthetically performs a work-balanced comparison between k runs of A and l runs of B. We show that by choosing k and l appropriately, we can compensate for the fact that one of the processes is computationally more efficient than the other.", notes = "WCCI 2006 - A joint meeting of the IEEE, the EPS, and the IEE.
