Basic Computational Economics using

Binder Binder Binder


Ömer Özak

This repository contains notebooks I have written to help my first and second year Ph.D. students get started using Jupyter/IPython for doing Computational Economics, Economic Growth, Comparative Development, and Dynamic Macroeconomics in general. I highly recommend students to also check out John Stachurski's website and his book.

These lectures are work in progress (and replicate the ones from my website Economic Growth and Comparative Development Website). Comments are welcome.


In order to work with them on your computer, you need to:

  1. Download the zipped file and extract its contents into a directory (preferably a subdirectory in your home directory).
  2. Use your computer's terminal (OSX's terminal or iterm2, Windows cmd) to go to the notebooks subdirectory in the directory where you extracted the files. E.g. if you extracted into $HOME/CompEcon then at the terminal prompt execute cd ~/CompEcon/notebooks
  3. At the terminal prompt execute jupyter notebook

Then a webpage should open with the notebooks. Click on the one you want to work with.

It is obviously presupposed you have IPython installed. If that is not the case, then head over to my Economic Growth and Comparative Development Website and follow the instructions.

Try it out online

If you want to try out some of the tools and play around without installing or if installation fails, use this Jupyter Notebook binder or the JupyterLab binder.

-> Enjoy! <-
