The probability that a biometric system will incorrectly identify an individual or will fail to reject an impostor. The rate given normally assumes passive impostor attempts. The False Accept Rate may be estimated as FAR = NFA / NIIA or FAR = NFA / NIVA where FAR is the false acceptance rate NFA is the number of false acceptances NIIA is the number of impostor identification attempts NIVA is the number of impostor verification attempts
The probability that a biometric system will incorrectly identify an individual or will fail to reject an impostor. Also known as the Type II error rate. It is stated as follows: FAR = NFA / NIIA or FAR = NFA / NIVA where FAR is the false acceptance rate NFA is the number of false acceptances NIIA is the number of impostor identification attempts NIVA is the number of impostor verification attempts
Literally means "compulsory". In Islam it refers to those acts and things which are compulsory on a Muslim. Abandoning or abstaining from a fard act is a major sin. Rejecting a fard act amounts to kufr.
Federal Acquisition Regulation. The FAR was established to codify uniform policies for acquisition of supplies and services by executive agencies. It is issued and maintained jointly, under the statutory authorities granted to the Secretary of Defense, Administrator of General Services and the Administrator, National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Statutory authorities to issue and revise the FAR have been delegated to the Procurement Executives in DOD, GSA, and NASA. See also O&M Contracts
Federal Acquisition Regulation. The FAR is the primary regulation for use by all Federal Executive agencies in their acquisition of supplies and services with appropriated funds. It is issued within applicable laws under the joint authorities of the Administrator of General Services, the Secretary of Defense, and the Administrator for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, under the broad policy guidelines of the Administrator, Office of Federal Procurement Policy, Office of Management and Budget.
Abbreviation for federal acquisition regulation. The guidelines by which the U.S. government purchases goods and services. Also the criteria that must be met by the vendor in order to be considered as a source for goods and services purchased by the U.S. government.
Free Asset Ratio. The surplus assets of a life assurance company over its liabilities in relation to its total assets. The FAR shows the company's capacity for future growth and to make future bonus payments to with-profitspolicyholders.
Floor Area Ratio. The ratio of the gross square footage of a building to the land on which it is situated. Calculated by dividing the total square footage in the building by the square footage of land area.
Floor Area Ratio; total square footage of building divided by total square footage of land area; Example: A building is 100 feet x 120 feet (total of 12,000 sf) The tract of land it occupies is 200 feet x 200 feet (40,000 sf) 12,000 sf/40,000 = .30 The building covers 30 % of the land area so the FAR is .30 or 30
FLOOR AREA RATIO. An expression of the amount of development intensity (typically, non residential uses) on a specific parcel of land. FAR is determined by dividing the total square footage of gross floor area of buildings on a site by the total square footage of the site itself.
Floor Area Ratio. A measure of development intensity. FAR is the ratio of the amount of floor area of a building to the amount of area of its site. For instance, a one-story building that covers an entire lot has an FAR of 1. Similarly, a one-story building that covers 1/2 of a lot has an FAR of 0.5.
FLOOR AREA RATIO. The relationship between the floor area of a building and the total area of the land under the building. Minimum and maximum floor area ratios are often established as part of a zoning ordinance.
Floor Area Ratio. The total floor area of all buildings or structures on a lot divided by the total area of the lot. FAR is a measure often used to determine the intensity of land use for a zoning district.
Floor Area Ratio. The ratio between a structure's total floor area and the total land area of the land upon which it is constructed. The FAR is calculated by dividing the total building floor area by the total building lot square area: floor area ratio = building floor area/building lot area. A maximum allowable floor area ratio is typically specified by the local building code or zoning.

Field anomaly relaxation. A concept developed by Russell Rhyne, used in morphological analysis. It involves a systematic approach to reduce the number of combinations of future possibilities to a manageable level, by excluding combinations that are implausible.
