This class will show how to solve dynamic stochastic general equilibrium
models using policy function iteration techniques. The first part of the
course will explain the basic algorithm and provide numerous examples of how
to apply it. The second part of the course will discuss how to speed up the
code using MEX functions, parallel processing, and supercomputers.
