modeling, the constraint domain associated with a multilevel programming problem is implicitly determined by a series of optimization problems which must be solved in a predetermined sequence. The field of multilevel
optimization has become a well-known and important research field. 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. Moreover, 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.
Audience: Researchers whose work involves the application of mathematical programming and optimization to hierarchical structures.
