Description: 

The RTG 1659 invites you from April 13 to 17 to the following short course:

The aim of the course is to study models with heterogeneous agents and incomplete markets in macroeconomics, and to learn how to solve these models
numerically.
We will discuss some classical and some very recent papers on heterogenous agent models. I will provide software tools (my own toolkit and some Matlab programs) that should make the solution of these models as easy as possible.
Some prior experience in programming (in Matlab or some other programming language) would be very useful.

Mo: 10-12 (room 21A) + 14-16 (room 203)
Tue: 10-14 (room 21A)
Wed: 14-18 (room 21A)
