SOME DERIVATIONS |

PROGRAMS: SOLVING MODELS ****** I use Paul Klein’s approach to solve linear rational expectation models. To implement Paul Klein’s method, and to run the following programs written by me, you need 3 MATLAB m files: solab.m; qzswitch.m; and qzdiv.m. These MATLAB m files are available from Paul Klein’s website. The 2 MATLAB m files, qzswitch.m and qzdiv.m, are originally written by C. Sims. |

PROGRAMS: ESTIMATING MODELS ****** I use the minimization program written by C. Sims to maximize the likelihood function. This wonderful program, csminwel.m, is available from C. Sims’ website. I have adjusted Paul Klein’s solabHO.m program to facilitate the numerical process. |

Formulation of Likelihood Function a la Ireland (2004) Maximum Likelihood Estimation of the Wedges Processes in Chari, Kehoe, and McGrattan (2007)’s Prototype Closed Economy Models PS: Here the likelihood function follows the formulation of Anderson et al. (1996). Please consult Lecture 4 for details. Bayesian Estimation of the Wedges Processes in Chari, Kehoe, and McGrattan (2007)’s Prototype Closed Economy Models |
