Hi,

First of all I want to express my thanks to all those having guided me until now.

Second, I will kindly ask you to clarify me, if possible about the errors below, listed after running my .mod file in matlab.

How should I do to understand the source of such errors …if it was about debugging in was simple … I was looking at my code to a certain line and column … but at this stage I just enter their code and I do not understand anything …

Configuring Dynare …

[mex] Generalized QZ.

[mex] Sylvester equation solution.

[mex] Kronecker products.

[mex] Sparse kronecker products.

[mex] Bytecode evaluation.

[mex] k-order perturbation solver.

[mex] k-order solution simulation.

Starting Dynare (version 4.2.1).

Starting preprocessing of the model file …

Substitution of endo lags >= 2: added 12 auxiliary variables and equations.

Found 67 equation(s).

Evaluating expressions…done

Computing static model derivatives:

- order 1

Computing dynamic model derivatives: - order 1

Processing outputs …done

Preprocessing completed.

Starting MATLAB/Octave computing.

This version of Dynare cannot estimate non linearized models!

Set “order” equal to 1.

??? Attempted to access k(1); index out of bounds because

numel(k)=0.

Error in ==> draw_prior_density at 120

binf = abscissa(k(1));

Thanks in advance for any useful advice (P.S. I am a beginner in DSGE … so any advice should be explicitly presented (not very technically) so that I can understand it).

Best regards,

Carla
