Global optimization algorithm for solving bilevel programming problems with quadratic lower levels

In this article, we propose a method for finding the global optimum of a class of nonlinear bilevel programming problems. The main idea of this method is to construct iteratively a sequence of points either ending at an optimal solution of the equivalent problem with a complementarity constraint, or converging to an optimal solution. The construction of such a sequence is performed by using a branch-and-bound scheme, together with some relaxation techniques, which are successfully applied in global optimization. Some illustrative examples and results on computational experiments are reported.
