Title: Uncertainties of the Yn Parameters of the Hage-Cifarelli Formalism

One method for determining the physical parameters of a multiplying system is summarized by Cifarelli [1]. In this methodology the single, double and triple rates are determined from what is commonly referred to as Feynman histograms. This paper will examine two methods for estimating the uncertainty in the parameters used in inferring these rates. These methods will be compared with simulated data in order to determine which one best approximates the sample uncertainty.
