variable placement query in bilevel keyword

Post by Jubeyer » 2 weeks ago

Hi,
I would like to know the answers of the following questions regarding bilevel program syntax since I am not certain after going through the documentation:

a. Should I only place the optimizing variables (excluding the optimizing variables of the follower) present in the objective function of the master problem after the keyword 'bilevel', there might be other variables who are not present in the objective function but those who are present there can be dependent on them; should I also include them as well?

b. What about the case in followers?

c. should I mention my indices along with the variable names while writing them after 'bilevel' keyword?

d. Is it possible to have a maximization problem of a follower where the leader problem is a minimization one?

Regards,
Jubeyer
