  • Motivated by various mean-field type linear-quadratic (MF-LQ, for short) multi-level Stackelberg games, we propose a kind of multi-level self-similar randomized domination-monotonicity structures. When the coefficients of a class of mean-field type forward-backward stochastic differential equations (MF-FBSDEs, for short) satisfy this kind of structures, we prove the existence, the uniqueness, an estimate and the continuous dependence on the coefficients of solutions. Further, the theoretical results are applied to construct unique Stackelberg equilibria for forward and backward MF-LQ multi-level Stackelberg games, respectively.
