You're right. This first version of benchmark tests is maybe not really
Currently, it requires exact reproduction of the reference result (no
statistical fluctuations are allowed). In principle, if we explicitly
set the random number seed, we should expect to get the same output, but
sometimes floating point operations are slightly different between
different platforms, each have their different rounding errors.
As David Boersma suggested last week (thanks David ;-) ), the benchmark
code needs to be updated to reflect that. It should then not test for
exact equality, but instead do a statistical test and only report
failure if the discrepancy is statistically too large.
I hope I could very soon provide a much more adapted version of
benchmark code on GitHub.
In the meanwhile, you can directly run the benchmark tests located in
benchPET and benchSPECT folders and compare your results to those
mentioned here :
Hope this helps,
