Dynare Steady State Toolbox
This toolbox provides a set of matlab routines that translate a matlab
routine computing the steady state of a DSGE model into something
readable by dynare (i.e. conforming to what is expected in a
*_steadystate2.m
file generated by Dynare from the equations in the
steady_state_model
model block). Examples are provided in the tests
subfolder. Assuming that the dynare/matlab
folder is in the
Matab/Octave's path, you just need to add the src
subfolder in the
path:
>> addpath TOOLBOXES_PATH/dynaresteadystatetoolbox/src
where TOOLBOXES_PATH
is the path to the folder where you unziped the
steadystate toolbox.
Compared to what Dynare does with the steady_state_model
, this
toolbox is far less efficient than Dynare in producing the
*_steadystate2.m
routine. The advantage is the additional
flexibility. The user can use any matlab statement in the source file
(loops, conditional constructs, fixed point routines, ...), add traps
and/or return custom error flags. Note that the routine produced by
this toolbox is as efficient as the one produced by Dynare from the
steady_state_model
block (only the generation of the
*_steadystate2.m
is slower, because this is done in Matlab/Octave
rather than by the C++ preprocessor). The relative cost associated to
the generation of the *_steadystate2.m
is generally very marginal,
when the model has to be estimated, or when one performs Monte Carlo
analysis to elicite the prior distributions.
