The above numbers rank forefront among Zhejiang provincial universities. The university has published 2769 academic papers in the journals indexed by CSSCI such asSocial science in China,Economic Research,Management World, andPhilosophical Researches, as well as 218 academic monographs. The two publications issued by our universityCollected Essays on Finance and EconomicsandYearBook of The Non-Public Sectors of The Economy in Zhejiangare published openly at both home and abroad while the former is listed as one of “national top hundred” Journals of Social science,Chinese Core Journals,Chinese University Core Journals of Humanities & Social science, and Chinese Social Science Citation Index Journals.ZUFE has constantly given high priority to the improvement of student quality by promoting educational reform and encouraging excellent students to take bi-degrees or change their original majors to their favorites. The university attaches great importance to a full range of cooperation and exchanges in international education. It has established close academic relations and collaborations with 73 universities in 21 countries by advancing international programs such as Teachers Exchange Program, Students Exchange Program and Credit Transfer System. Besides, the university has conducted several teaching programs like ACCA, CGA, Sino-US cooperation class and Sino-Canada cooperation class. Undergraduate supervisory system is now in full operation in ZUFE, which provides a good environment and system insurance for the development of students. During the past 5 years, ZUFE students have received 11 international, 41 national and 984 provincial awards in various disciplines and science and technology contests. The ZUFE graduates are widely welcomed by employers so that the initial employment rate has reached 95%.Inspired by its school motto “Achieve with moral excellence, progress with the Times” and adhering to the policy of “Managing school by law, making decisions democratically, respecting the talents, and governing academic studies by Professors”, Zhejiang University of Finance and Economics is vigorously implementing the development strategy of “running school with quality, improving school with talents, and strengthening school with research”, and striving to develop itself into a high-level university of finance and economics and a prestigious university with an outstanding reputation.

To accurately predict the main economic indices of high technology enterprises in China with nonlinear small sample characteristic, a new method for optimizing Nash nonlinear grey Bernoulli model (Nash NGBM(1,1)) is proposed in this study. Meanwhile, an optimized model is constructed to fully employ the predictive functions of original data information and solve optimum parameters. The process is indicated as follows: First, the merits and the disadvantages of the various approaches for ascertaining the initial conditions of the grey model are analyzed. Then, an optimized predictive function of the NGBM(1,1) is obtained by minimizing the error in the summed squares. Based on the function thus obtained, a nonlinear optimization model is developed to calculate the unknown parameters in the Nash NGBM(1,1). The results from a fluctuating sequence example and an actual case from the opto-electronics industry in Taiwan indicate that the optimized Nash NGBM(1,1) proposed in this paper gives a superior modeling performance. Finally, the main economic indices pertinent to high technology enterprises in China are forecasted using the optimized Nash NGBM(1,1) and relevant suggestions are made. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

This paper investigates the adaptive-impulsive projective synchronization of drive-response delayed complex dynamical networks with time-varying coupling, in which the weights of links between two connected nodes are time varying. By the stability analysis of the impulsive functional differential equation, the sufficient conditions for achieving projective synchronization are obtained, and a hybrid controller, that is, an adaptive feedback controller with impulsive control effects is designed. The numerical examples are presented to illustrate the effectiveness and advantage of the proposed synchronization criteria. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V. Source

The performance and development review (PADR) evaluation in a company is a complex group decision-making problem that is influenced by multiple and conflicting objectives. The complexity of the PADR evaluation problem is often due to the difficulties in determining the degrees of an alternative that satisfies the criteria. In this paper, we present a hesitant fuzzy multiple criteria group decision-making methods for PADR evaluation. We first develop some operations based on Einstein operations. Then, we proposed some aggregation operators to aggregate hesitant fuzzy elements and the relationship between our proposed operators and the existing ones are discussed in detail. Furthermore, the procedure of multicriteria group decision making based on the proposed operators is given under hesitant fuzzy environment. Finally, a practical example about PADR evaluation in a company is provided to illustrate the developed method. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Source

Synchronization of nonlinear dynamical systems with complex variables has attracted much more attention in various fields of science and engineering. In this paper, the problem of parameter identification and adaptive impulsive synchronization for a class of chaotic (hyperchaotic) complex nonlinear systems with uncertain parameters is investigated. Based on the theories of adaptive control and impulsive control, a synchronization scheme is designed to make a class of chaotic and hyperchaotic complex systems asymptotically synchronized, and uncertain parameters are identified simultaneously in the process of synchronization. Particularly, the proposed adaptive-impulsive control laws for synchronization are simple and can be readily applied in practical applications. The synchronization of two identical chaotic complex Chen systems and two identical hyperchaotic complex Lü systems are taken as two examples to verify the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed controllers and identifiers. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

Triangular fuzzy preference relation (TFPR) is an effective framework to model pairwise estimations with imprecision and vagueness. In order to obtain a reliable and rational decision result, it is important to investigate consistency and priority derivation of TFPRs. The paper analyzes existing definitions and properties of consistent TFPRs, and illustrates that they have no invariance with respect to permutations of decision alternatives. A new triangular fuzzy arithmetic based transitivity equation is introduced to define consistent TFPRs. The new transitivity equation reflects multiplicative consistency of modal values and multiplicative consistency of geometric means of triangular fuzzy estimations. Some properties are presented for consistent TFPRs, and a notion of acceptable consistency is put forward for TFPRs. Geometric mean and uncertainty ratio based transformation formulae are devised to convert normalized triangular fuzzy multiplicative weights into consistent TFPRs. A logarithmic least square model is further established for deriving a normalized triangular fuzzy multiplicative weight vector from a TFPR with acceptable consistency. A geometric mean based method is developed to compare and rank triangular fuzzy multiplicative weights. Three numerical examples including a group decision making problem are examined to demonstrate validity and advantages of the proposed models. © 2015 Elsevier Inc. Source
