I have developed an algorithm that performs at least as well as others in the field, but it is much simpler. That is to say, it does not depend on complicated models or advanced mathematics and is more straightforward.
When writing it up, I would like to call the method "simple," but I feel like it can also mean "unsophisticated." Is there a word that means "uncomplicated" or "simple" but has a positive connotation? I am tempted to use "elegant," but to call one's own algorithm elegant seems inappropriate.
"We present a simple method for , which outperforms on several metrics."
