In this paper, we employ the selective re-encryption operation mode based on fuzzy logic which selects the re-encryption nodes in response to an increase in the false positive rate (FPR).
Therefore, this study was conducted to estimate the genetic parameters for milk BHBA, acetone (Ac), FPR, and energy balance (EB) and to further investigate the effect of early lactation FPR and EB on raising the milk ketone body levels in Korean Holsteins by utilizing milk test day records.
Figures 4 and 5 and Tables A10 and A11 also showed that the gs method had a lower FPR than the 10 probe-wise tests, but had higher FNR than these 10 probe-wise tests.

Based on the above motivations, in this paper, we are devoted to obtaining the FPR of highest consistent degree from given HFPR based on the multiplicative consistency of HFPR by means of fuzzy linear programming method.
Given the large number (N-[N.sub.I]) of nonboundary pixels in the images, FPR calculated in the form of (7) is close to zero, making the metrics insensitive to the change of edge detection algorithms.
