4 hours workshop; 1 hour lunch break

coffee included, lunch on own


Presented by

Alexander Richter, Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

Nathaniel Throckmorton, College of William & Mary


Course abstract: 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.
