### Abstract

Many practical large-scale optimization problems are not only sparse, but also display some form of block-structure such as primal or dual block angular structure. Often these structures are nested: each block of the coarse top level structure is block-structured itself. Problems with these characteristics appear frequently in stochastic programming but also in other areas such as telecommunication network modelling. We present a linear algebra library tailored for problems with such structure that is used inside an interior point solver for convex quadratic programming problems. Due to its object-oriented design it can be used to exploit virtually any nested block structure arising in practical problems, eliminating the need for highly specialised linear algebra modules needing to be written for every type of problem separately. Through a careful implementation we achieve almost automatic parallelisation of the linear algebra. The efficiency of the approach is illustrated on several problems arising in the financial planning, namely in the asset and liability management. The problems are modelled as
