Notes

Gensys C++ mex Function and Julia Comparison. These notes discuss a C++ implementation of a solution of a linear rational expectations model. Compared to the Sims (2002) implementation, there is a significant speed up. The notes compare the speed of a simple change to the Sims (2002) implementation and Julia routines.
Matlab files

A Practical Introduction to DSGE Modeling with Dynare. These notes show how to install Dynare, how to write a model in Dynare notation, what information is stored in the Matlab output, and how to estimate and forecast using Dynare.
Matlab files

Extracting Rational Expectations Model Structural Matrices from Dynare. These notes show how to extract the structural matrices from the Dynare output. These matrices are used to show how to approximation the solution of models with anticipated structural changes, the zero lower bound, and other occasionally binding constraints.
