Dynare comes with a database of example ``.mod`` files, which are
designed to show a broad range of Dynare features, and are taken from
academic papers for most of them. You should have these files in the
``examples`` subdirectory of your distribution.
Here is a short list of the examples included. For a more complete
description, please refer to the comments inside the files themselves.
``ramst.mod``
An elementary real business cycle (RBC) model, simulated in a
deterministic setup.
``example1.mod``
``example2.mod``
Two examples of a small RBC model in a stochastic setup, presented
in *Collard (2001)* (see the file ``guide.pdf`` which comes with
Dynare).
``example3.mod``
A small RBC model in a stochastic setup, presented in *Collard
(2001)*. The steady state is solved analytically using the
``steady_state_model`` block (see :bck:`steady_state_model`).
``fs2000.mod``
A cash in advance model, estimated by *Schorfheide (2000)*. The
file shows how to use Dynare for estimation.
``fs2000_nonstationary.mod``
The same model than ``fs2000.mod``, but written in non-stationary
form. Detrending of the equations is done by Dynare.
``bkk.mod``
Multi-country RBC model with time to build, presented in *Backus,
Kehoe and Kydland (1992)*. The file shows how to use Dynare’s
macro processor.
``agtrend.mod``
Small open economy RBC model with shocks to the growth trend,
presented in *Aguiar and Gopinath (2004)*.
``NK_baseline.mod``
Baseline New Keynesian Model estimated in *Fernández-Villaverde
(2010)*. It demonstrates how to use an explicit steady state file
to update parameters and call a numerical solver.
``Ramsey_Example.mod``
File demonstrating how to conduct optimal policy experiments in a
simple New Keynesian model either under commitment (Ramsey) or using
optimal simple rules (OSR)
