Water Diversion Conflicts in China: A Hierarchical Perspective

Shawei He, Keith W. Hipel, D. Marc Kilgour
2014 Water resources management  
In a hierarchical graph model, DMs are classified as common decision makers (CDMs) and local decision makers (LDMs). They can initiate di↵erent types of moves, and have interrelated preferences.  ...  More specifically, in a hierarchical graph model, one or more decision makers (DMs) at a higher level are involved in lower level or local disputes, such as when a central government is participating in  ...  Decision makers in game theory are assumed rational, because it is important for policy makers or mediators to know how a better outcome can be achieved.  ...
