Pessimistic bilevel linear optimization

In this paper, we investigate the pessimistic bilevel linear optimization problem (PBLOP). Based on the lower level optimal value function and duality, the PBLOP can be transformed to a single-level while nonconvex and nonsmooth optimization problem. By use of linear optimization duality, we obtain a tractable and equivalent transformation and propose algorithms for computing global … Read more

Bilevel optimization problems with vectorvalued objective functions in both levels

Bilevel optimization problems with multivalued objective functions in both levels are first replaced by a problem with a parametric lower level using a convex combination of the lower level objectives. Thus a nonconvex multiobjective bilevel optimization problem arises which is then transformed into a parametric bilevel programming problem. The investigated problem has been considered in … Read more
