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:
- Download the zipped file and extract its contents into a directory (preferably a subdirectory in your home directory).
- Use your computer's terminal (OSX's terminal or iterm2, Windows
cmd) to go to the
notebookssubdirectory in the directory where you extracted the files. E.g. if you extracted into
$HOME/CompEconthen at the terminal prompt execute
- At the terminal prompt execute
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.
