OOQP is an object-oriented C++ package, based on a primal-dual
interior-point method, for solving convex quadratic programming
problems (QPs). It contains code that can be used "out of the box" to
solve a variety of structured QPs, including general sparse QPs, QPs
arising from support vector machines, Huber regression problems, and
QPs with bound constraints.
OOQP also can be used as a framework can be used to design efficient
solvers for new classes of structured QPs. Its design allows for easy
substitution of the linear algebra modules, allowing different
standard linear algebra packages to be tried.

OOQP download page.
Having downloaded and unpacked the tarball, consult the file INSTALL in the main directory.
The file OOQP/doc/index.html in your unpacked distribution contains
links to comprehensive information on installation of the various
instantiations of OOQP. Point your browser to this file by typing an

If you wish to use OOQP's solvers for general sparse QP, you will need
to obtain a copy of MA27 from the
before proceeding. Complete instructions are given in the INSTALL file in the OOQP distribution.
