Goals of Summer School

The school will provide an introduction to Dynare and to Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) modeling. Dynare is a free sofware for simulating and estimating DSGE models.

The courses will focus on simulation, estimation of DSGE models as well as computation of optimal policy, identification and sensitivity analysis. It will be also the occasion to introduce the new features in Dynare 4.3 (to be released before the Summer School).

This Summer school is aimed at beginners as well as at more experienced researchers. PhD students are encouraged to participate.

As an alternative to MATLAB, it is possible to use the free software GNU Octave, version 3.0 or higher (see DynareOctave).
