Caption: Figure 1.

The left panel illustrates the light curve of a simulated example of a single transit event of a Jupiter-sized planet. The solid line in the right panel shows the frequency of actual detections as a function of the adopted figure of merit, while the shaded region illustrates ±3σ range of results from the complete simulation suite. Adopting FOM (σ) > 6 reduces the false positive rate to under 50%.
