I am writing and editing scientific papers and sometimes I come accross the noun "results" and become very confused as to what preposition should follow. It usually happens when the paper is mentioning simulation results for/of a variable that was an output of the simulation process.
Example: Let X1 be a variable that is one of the outputs of a simulation. The paper reads: "In Table 1, the simulation results for/of X1 according to variations of X2 are presented". I think "for" is the correct preposition but I also see people using "of" in similar cases. Could you explain which one is more appropiate?
Thanks in advance.
