Abstract: This thesis will introduce a historical perspective of the development of work in the field of multi-level linear programming. It will then proceed to extend the theoretical work of the mixed integer bi-level linear programming problem to encompass the binary integer bi-level linear programming problem. An algorithm will be developed to solve this particular problem using a preference function to determine the choice of branching in a branch and bound tree. Computational results will be compiled and the implications discussed.
