Abstract  

The comparator method, earlier published byDe Corte et al. is first discussed as well as a more practical transformation, which delivers directly the flux ratio, using a relative technique. For each part of the multiple comparator method (MCM) separately, a discussion of error multiplication is worked out and at the end a general formula to calculate the total error change is derived.
