Video Tutorials

If you have no or little prior experience with programming in either Gauss or Matlab, I would advise you to start with the video tutorial to the program ‘Ch3_olg_dyn1’ and subsequently invoke the video on ‘Ch3_turnpike’. In order to learn the most from the videos, download the teaching slides and the computer code of the chapters from my web page before you play it. Store all Gauss or Matlab codes of each chapter in a separate directory, start Gauss or Matlab and load the respective program into the editor prior to the start. It would also be helpful if you have read through the material provided in the respective chapters of the book.
