© Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2015. In a tri-level hierarchical decision problem, each decision entity at one level has its objective, constraints and decision variables affected in part by the decision entities at the other two levels. The choice of values for its variables may allow it to influence the decisions made at other levels, and thereby improve its own objective. We called this a tri-level decision problem. When multiple decision entities are involved at the middle and bottom levels, the top-level entity’s decision will be affected not only by these followers’ individual reactions but also by the relationships among the followers. We call this problem a tri-level multi-follower (TLMF) decision.
