Computational Methods in Macro
The objective of the course is to learn how to solve the main workhorse models in macro using Python, with an emphasis on models with heterogeneous agents, and to show some leading applications of these models in recent literature. By the end of the course one should know the basic toolkits to solve and simulate macro models and should be able to apply/extend them for research purposes.
- Intro to python
