In many decision processes there is an hierarchy of decision-makers and decisions are taken at different levels in this hierarchy. Multi-level programming focuses on the whole hierarchy structure. In terms of modeling, the constraint domain associated with a multi-level programming problem is implicitly determined by a series of optimization problems which must be solved in a predetermined sequence. Hierarchical structures can be found in scientific disciplines such as environment, ecology, biology, chemical engineering, mechanics, classification theory, databases, network design, transportation, game theory and economics. New applications are constantly being introduced. This has stimulated the development of new theory and efficient algorithms. This volume contains 16 chapters written by various leading researchers and presents a cohesive authoritative overview of developments and applications in their emerging field of optimization. This volume will be of interest to researchers whose work involves the application of mathematical programming and optimization to hierarchical structures.
