A framework of stochastic multilevel programming is proposed for modelling decentralized decision-making problem in stochastic environment. According to different decision criteria, the stochastic decentralized decision-making problem is formulated as expected value multilevel programming, and chanceconstrained multilevel programming. In order to solve the proposed stochastic multilevel programming models for the Stackelberg-Nash equilibriums, genetic algorithms, neural networks and stochastic simulation are integrated to produce a hybrid intelligent algorithm. Finally, two numerical examples are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the hybrid intelligent algorithm.
