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.
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.
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.
- function approximation, numerical integration
- perturbation, projection methods
- Kalman filter, Bayesian estimation, MCMC methods
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.
- models with heterogeneous agents
- continuous time models
- models with occasionally binding constraints
