Thank you!
The analysis of the stochastic noise figure may be doable given the clean analytic components of the simulation (Legendre, pseudo-inverse, Gaussian noise). In the deterministic noise figure, the noise value is quantified by the complexity of the target Q_f. While deterministic noise (the part of f that cannot be captured by \mathcal H) is indeed related to Q_f, it is not necessarily linearly related to it so that direct parallel with what happens with stochastic noise does not hold.

BTW, the LaTeX stuff is done by delimiters [ math ] and [ /math ] (without the spaces) instead of $ and $. A bit cumbersome when you use a lot of math.
