We study the equivalence among a nonconvex QOP, its CPP and DNN relaxations under the assumption that the aggregated and correlative sparsity of the data matrices of the CPP relaxation is represented by a block-clique graph $G$. By exploiting the correlative sparsity, we decompose the CPP relaxation problem into a clique-tree structured family of smaller subproblems. Each subproblem is associated with a node of a clique tree of $G$. The optimal value can be obtained by applying an algorithm that we propose for solving the subproblems recursively from leaf nodes to the root node of the clique-tree. We establish the equivalence between the QOP and its DNN relaxation from the equivalence between the reduced family of subproblems and their DNN relaxations by applying the known results on: (i) CPP and DNN reformulation of a class of QOPs with linear equality, complementarity and binary constraints in $4$ nonnegative variables. (ii) DNN reformulation of a class of quadratically constrained convex QOPs with any size. (iii) DNN reformulation of LPs with any size. As a result, we show that a QOP whose subproblems are the QOPs mentioned in (i), (ii) and (iii) is equivalent to its DNN relaxation, if the subproblems form a clique-tree structured family induced from a block-clique graph.
