Title: Improved Figure of Merit for Feynman Histograms

Abstract

Typically a FOM that takes into account the differences between each bin of the histograms, as compared to the magnitude of the combination of the corresponding uncertainties, is used. Because the uncertainties corresponding to the larger multiplet bins are inherently larger than those of the smaller multiplet bins, this type of FOM puts more weight on differences between smaller multiplet bins. New proposed FOM also takes into account sensitivity of leakage multiplication (which is most sensitive to higher multiplet bins) to each bin in the histogram.
