        To achieve the goals, a hybrid research strategy has been used in this research. In qualitative research, 16 factors affecting the behavior of individual investors (availability, limited attention, self atribution, anchoring point, over confidence, gambler's fallacy, loss aversion, increasing risk appetite, justification, optimism, regret aversion , time horizon, control center, tolerance of ambiguity, confident- anxious, careful-impetuous) which was obtained through the method of analyzing the content of semi-structured interviews of capital market experts, which were based on the construction of a researcher-made questionnaire. In the quantitative section, the final model of decision-making behavior of the individual investors was extracted using structural equations and fitted out. In the capital market of Iran, the model of the behavior of individual investors begins with cultural factors. In other words, the underlying factor in the behavior of investors is the factor of culture. The theory that emotional biases are prior to cognitive biases is not confirmed in this research. Personality has a positive relationship with herding behavior. In other words, category of anxiety in stockholders, increases the volume of their herding behavior. Manuscript profile

        Manufacturing company’s decisions regarding the quantity of production and inventory is a production planning and inventory control problem. Decisions about transferring products are expressed as a transportation and routing problem. Considering these three problems together results in an integrated production-inventory-routing planning (PIRP) which is one of the important supply chain problems. Companies which solve their PIRP problems better can decrease the cost of their products and gain more competitive advantage compared to other competing companies. Based on today’s strict regulations, companies must take into account environmental considerations in addition to economical ones in all their processes, from production until supply. Thus, an appropriate transportation planning can prevent the excessive increase in costs and decrease environmental pollution. Therefore, this study integrates the problem of decreasing environmental pollution with PIRP and develops a green PIRP (GPIRP) problem which efficiently considers the economic and social dimensions of production and supply. This problem is modeled in an integrated manner using the MILP approach. In order to show the applicability of the developed model and its practicability of environmental aspect, a case study is conducted on Ahvaz Sugar Refinery, Iran. Finally, some managerial insights are derived from the computational results. Manuscript profile

        In this research, the multi-variable linear regression relationship has been developed among the important factors influencing unemployment rate. The seasonal data is from 1394 to 1394, which is compiled from reliable economic data bases of country. Independent variables are: net foreign assets of the banking system (billion rials), net debt of the public sector to the banking system (billion rials), liquidity in terms of its constituent parts (billion rials), rate of dollar (rials), economic participation rate, average inflation rate, The average annual interest rate on state-owned banks, the percentage of jobseekers (65-15). The results indicate that there is a negative and significant relationship between unemployment rate and average inflation rate and economic participation rate, while the net debt of the public sector has had a positive and significant relationship with the banking system and unemployment rate. The greatest negative effects on unemployment rate are the rate of economic participation and the greatest positive impact on the unemployment rate is the net debt of the public sector to the banking system.

        Performing the concurrent analysis of organizational, departmental and individual scales alongside macro and micro levels of abstraction in temporal, spatial and event-driven contexts may significantly clarify the concept of learning, and develops the opportunities for effective policy making accordingly. It would also help to improve the performance indicators of the system and its involved agents globally. Due to Ignorance of aforementioned concurrent analysis, the relationship between organizational learning and learning in lower scales has been ambiguous, and monitoring the effect of organizational learning on organization performance indicators has been neglected. Hence, whether organizational learning is an effective factor in the amplitude of organization competitive advantages or not has remained a serious question yet. However, a potential solution to this question has got conceivable through the multi-method system modeling perspective. Design and analysis of integrated multi-scale learning in organizations are now possible through hybrid modeling and simulation and the extended methodology presented in this research along with the related architecture. The outcome is a plain platform which embraces lucid modeling of complex abstract concepts including learning in organizations comprehensively. Future case studies may be required to further confirm the applicability of this methodology and underpin its administrative value. Manuscript profile

        This paper examines the co-ordination of pricing and advertisement decisions in a bi-level supply chain. The game theory approach is used to model the pricing, the size of the economic order, the retail sales and constructive sales decisions. Three game scenarios are designed based on the model of the newspaper sales man: 1) The Stackelberg game where the manufacturer of the leading role and retailer as a follower, 2) the Nash game where the manufacturer and retailer have the same market power and 3) Full cooperation game where the manufacturer and retailer take the best decisions. In cooperative situation, we will impose an increase in the cost of advertising on the chain rather than a decentralized chain, but it leads to increased profits and increased customer satisfaction, which means a win-win decision-making system for the supply chain managers and customers.
