Abstract: Abstract We study (nonconvex) quadratic optimization problems with complementarity constraints, establishing an exact completely positive reformulation under—apparently new—mild conditions involving only the constraints, not the objective. Moreover, we also give the conditions for strong conic duality between the obtained completely positive problem and its dual. Our approach is based on purely continuous models which avoid any branching or use of large constants in implementation. An application to pursuing interpretable sparse solutions of quadratic optimization problems is shown to satisfy our settings, and therefore we link quadratic problems with an exact sparsity term $$\Vert {{\mathsf {x}}}\Vert _0$$ ‖ x ‖ 0 to copositive optimization. The covered problem class includes sparse least-squares regression under linear constraints, for instance. Numerical comparisons between our method and other approximations are reported from the perspective of the objective function value.
