Brings together dynamic equilibrium theory, data analysis, and advanced econometric and computational methods to provide a comprehensive set of techniques for use by academic economists as well as professional macroeconomists in various fields. This book starts from a class of DSGE models and describes methods needed to estimate their parameters.
