### Abstract

A new concept is proposed for linking algebraic modeling language and the structure exploiting solver. SPI (Structure Passing Interface) is a program that enables retrieving structure from the anonymous mathematical program built by the algebraic modeling language. SPI passes the special structure of the problem to a SES (Structure Exploiting Solver). An integration of SPI and SES leads to SET (Structure Exploiting Tool) and can be used with any algebraic modeling language. Key words. Algebraic modeling language, large scale optimization, structure exploiting solver. 1 Introduction Practitioners who use mathematical programming are confronted with a dilemma. On the one hand, their problems are usually so large and so complex that they cannot be modeled without the aid of an algebraic modeling language. On the other hand, large models often necessitate the use of a specialized structure exploiting solver. Unfortunately, algebraic modeling languages only access general purpose This r...
