Chapter 25: Simulation and estimation of macroeconomic models in Dynare
This chapter provides a brief guide to using Dynare. Dynare is free software (available at http://www.dynare.org/) able to simulate and estimate Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models. Dynare is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Matlab version 7.0 (R14) or above is required to run Dynare. As a free alternative to Matlab it is also possible to run Dynare on GNU Octave version 3.0.0 or above. No additional toolboxes are necessary but having Matlab’s ‘optimization toolbox’ installed allows for additional options when using some commands. Dynare’s current development team consists of Stéphane Adjemian, Houtan Bastani, Michel Juillard, Frédéric Karamé, Junior Maih, Ferhat Mihoubi, George Perendia, Marco Ratto and Sebastien Villemot.
