# @btime changes the result

I will write a difficult to read program because I know its analytical solution.
What you just need to to is putting @btime in front of the function call, at the end.
Read the last result of the 4th column:
With @btime:
-0.269957827874900
Without @btime
-0.269946270346980

It’s quite funny the fact that the result with @btime is more accurate than the one without it. The algorithm is a really simple and approximate variational algorithm.

`@btime` may (will) evaluate the call multiple times, but you are setting `Random.seed!(1)` only once.
you may want to move the rng seeding into the `setup` block of `@btime`
