Topic 8: Search and matching, old Keynesian, and new monetarist models

In this topic I give an introduction to the theory of labour market search, and its links to old Keynesian ideas. I also briefly discuss new monetarist models.

Topic 7: Endogenous growth theory

In this topic I give an introduction to the theory of endogenous growth, looking at scale effects, and the main classes of endogenous growth models (quality ladders, variety expansion, etc.).

Topic 6: Continuous time optimal control

In this topic I give an introduction to continuous time optimal control, and apply it to a few standard examples.

Topic 5: Numerical Integration + Estimating DSGE models via filtering to recover states: Part 2

In this topic we look at non-linear filters and numerical integration.

Topic 4: Estimating DSGE models via filtering to recover states: Part 1

In this topic we look at the Kalman filter, and a few related techniques for non-linear estimation.
