The number one criticism of average-case analysis is that we do not actually know the probability distribution of real-world inputs. Thus, analyzing an algorithm on some random model has no implications for practical performance. At its core, this criticism doubts the existence of external validity, i.e., it assumes that algorithmic behavior on the somewhat simple and clean models does not translate beyond the models to practical performance on real-world input. This talk discusses a first step towards studying the question of external validity systematically. This is done by comparing the practical performance of algorithms to the performance on generated networks with varying properties.
