Lectures and Hands-on Computer Labs

Despite the COVID-19 outbreak, we are committed to running the Summer School. This includes provisions for live-streaming of all the content and interactions if necessary. 

Overview

The Tools for Macroeconomists Summer School offers two courses: The Essentials and Advanced Tools. These intensive graduate-level courses are aimed at students, researchers and professionals and provide a combination of lectures and hands-on computer sessions. Participants will leave with a deep understanding of numerical methods and a portfolio of Matlab codes implementing them.

The summer school is hosted by the University of Oxford between August 3 and 14, 2020.

The Essentials

August 3-7, 2020

Wouter den Haan and Petr Sedlacek

This course covers basic building blocks of numerical analysis, their use in solving modern macroeconomic models and an introduction into model estimation. Students will use Matlab code to solve and analyse macroeconomic models.

Topics include:

  • function approximation, numerical integration
  • perturbation, projection methods
  • Kalman filter, Bayesian estimation, MCMC methods

Advanced Tools

August 10-14, 2020

Wouter den Haan and Pontus Rendahl

This course teaches state-of-the-art methods for solving and analyzing advanced macro-economic models. Participants will not only write their own code, but also learn how to resolve problems that researchers may run into when using these advanced methods.

Topics include:

  • models with heterogeneous agents
  • continuous time models
  • models with occasionally binding constraints
