Given the current situation 'Tools for Macroeconomists: The Essentials and Advanced Tools' will be run online. If possible, courses will have alternative in-person components for those who want to come to Oxford.

ADVANCED TOOLS - 26-30 JULY 2021

ABOUT THE COURSE

Professor Wouter den Haan (LSE), Petr Sedláček (Oxford) and Pontus Rendahl (Cambridge) will be teaching two intensive graduate level courses providing a combination of lectures and hands-on computer sessions. Participants will leave with an understanding of numerical methods and a portfolio of computer codes to implement them.

THE ESSENTIALS

Wouter den Haan and Petr Sedláček

This course covers basic building blocks of numerical analysis, their use in solving modern macroeconomic models and an introduction into model estimation.

Topics covered in the course are:

  • Function approximation and numerical integration
  • Perturbation and projection methods
  • Kalman filter, Bayesian estimation and Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods

ADVANCED TOOLS

Wouter den Haan and Pontus Rendahl

This course teaches state-of-the-art methods for solving and analyzing advanced macroeconomic models and teaches participants how to resolve practical problems when implementing these tools.

Topics covered in the course are:

  • Models with heterogenous agents
  • Continuous time models
  • Models with occasionally binding constraints

ESSENTIAL INFORMATION
