Fixed point theorems under c-distance in ordered cone metric space
Recently, Cho et al. [Y. J. Cho, R. Saadati, S. H. Wang, Common xed point theorems on generalized distance in ordered cone metric spaces, Comput. Math. Appl. 61 (2011) 1254-1260] dened the concept of the c-distance in a cone metric space and proved some xed point theorems on c-distance. In this paper, we prove some new xed point and common xed point theorems by using the distance in ordered cone metric spaces.

Estimating most productive scale size in DEA with real and integer value data
For better guiding a system, senior managers should have accurate information. Using Data Envelopment analysis (DEA) help managers in this objective. Thus, many investigations have been made in order to find the most productive scale size (MPSS) for the evaluating decision making units (DMUs). In this paper we consider this case where there exist subsets of input and output variables to be integer valued. We use data envelopment analysis (DEA) technique, which is a mathematical programming for efficiency evaluation and target setting for a set of DMUs, and develop a model with which the desired MPSS point can be found. The applicability of developed model is illustrated in the context of the analysis to show the validity of the proposed model.

Solving Differential Equations Using Modified VIM
In this paper a modification of He's variational iteration method (VIM) has been employed to solve Dung and Riccati equations. Sometimes, it is not easy or even impossible, to obtain the first few iterations of VIM, therefore, we suggest to approximate the integrand by using suitable expansions such as Taylor or Chebyshev expansions.

A new optimal method of fourth-order convergence for solving nonlinear equations
In this paper, we present a fourth order method for computing simple roots of nonlinear equations by using suitable Taylor and weight function approximation. The method is based on Weerakoon-Fernando method [S. Weerakoon, G.I. Fernando, A variant of Newton's method with third-order convergence, Appl. Math. Lett. 17 (2000) 87-93]. The method is optimal, as it needs three evaluations per iterate, namely one evaluation of function and two evaluations of rst derivative. So, Kung and Traub's conjecture is fullled. We also perform some numerical tests that conrm the theoretical results and allow us to compare the proposed method with some existing methods of the same type.

Application of iterative method for solving fuzzy Bernoulli equation under generalized H-differentiability
In this paper, the Picard method is proposed to solve the Bernoulli equation with fuzzy initial condition under generalized H-differentiability. The existence and uniqueness of the solution and convergence of the proposed method are proved in details. Finally an example shows the accuracy of this method.

Robust stabilization of a class of three-dimensional uncertain fractional-order non-autonomous systems
This paper concerns the problem of robust stabilization of uncertain fractional-order non-autonomous systems. In this regard, a single input active control approach is proposed for control and stabilization of three-dimensional uncertain fractional-order systems. The robust controller is designed on the basis of fractional Lyapunov stability theory. Furthermore, the effects of model uncertainties are fully taken into account. Also, the robust stability and access to the equilibrium point of the control scheme are analytically proved. Moreover, fast response and easy realization in real world applications are some special features of the suggested method. Finally, as a numerical simulation, control and stabilization of three-dimensional uncertain fractional-order Chen system is provided to illustrate the usefulness and applicability of the proposed approach in practice. It is worth to notice that the proposed active control approach can be employed for robust stabilization of a large class of three-dimensional uncertain nonlinear fractional-order non autonomous dynamical systems.

Numerical solution of hybrid fuzzy differential equations by fuzzy neural network
The hybrid fuzzy differential equations have a wide range of applications in science and engineering. We consider the problem of nding their numerical solutions by using a novel hybrid method based on fuzzy neural network. Here neural network is considered as a part of large eld called neural computing or soft computing. The proposed algorithm is illustrated by numerical examples and the results obtained using the scheme presented here agree well with the analytical solutions.

Evaluation of customer satisfaction about Bank service quality
This research has studied and ranked the service quality and its relation with customers' satisfaction in a bank in Iran. In the theoretical principles section, the concepts and denitions related to services, satisfaction, banking and research background have been studied. The statistical community of the study was all the bank customers that have referred to the bankand have had interest-free loans savings accounts or current accounts. The study statistical sample was calculated using the formula; then a questionnaire was designed and distributed among sample members and nally, the research hypotheses were examined using collected data. Pearson correlation coecient test was used to test the first hypothesis and specically related hypotheses. Also, the Friedman ranking test was used to test the second hypothesis. The rst hypothesis test results showed that there is a positive and signicant relationship between service quality and customers' satisfaction. The second hypothesis test results also showed that there are signicant differences among the priorities of the constituent elements of service quality.

On the relative efficiency in general network structures
Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is an eciency measurement tool for evaluation of similar Decision Making Units (DMUs). In DEA, weights are assigned to inputs and outputs and the absolute eciency score is obtained by the ratio of weighted sum of outputs to weighted sum of inputs. In traditional DEA models, this measure is also equivalent with relative eciency score which evaluates DMUs in compare with the most ecient DMU. Recently network DEA models are appeared in the literature, which try to assess DMUs regarding their internal production divisions and intermediate products. In this paper we compare absolute and relative eciency scores in network framework. Since in network DEA models, an ecient DMU does not exist necessarily, the relative eciency model helps us to have at least one ecient DMU in our assessments.
