abstract = {Exact randomization tests in their naïve implementation impose a computation burden that makes them generally prohibitive, forcing the researcher to choose between approximate (i.e. incomplete) randomization tests, rank-based tests or normal-family approximations. The algebra and enumeration algorithm for the comparison of two independent means are minutely analysed, and several reduction and acceleration principles are proposed. A sequential back-up mechanism turns out to be the simplest and most efficient to test the difference at the alpha level, with a time-cost generally cut down by a factor better than 1–alpha.},
