Hello everyone!

I’m a 4th year undergraduate student from Barcelona. I’m currenlty writing my thesis on simulating calibrated basic neoclassical and new keynesian models on Spain and UK by using Dynare. For now, I’ve adopted Jesus Fernandez-Villaverde’s RBC model (economics.sas.upenn.edu/~jesusfv/teaching.html) and computed the Steady State per hand. I want to write a Steady State solver Matlab file (.m) so to link it to my Dynare Script.

However, I’m very new to Dynare as well as to Matlab (I’m using both for the first time since I started with my Thesis this semester). Hence, I had some problems on writing a Matlab function for my Steady State. Even though I tried to understand some of the steady state .m files in the Dynare examples folder (i.e.NK_baseline) and tried to adapt it for my particular case, I don’t understand many of the commands that are displayed.

Therefore, I would really appreciate any kind of help as for instance giving me some advise on how to write successfully a Steady State function on Matlab, or having a look at my attached .mod files for my Neoclassical model and explain to me how may I create a .m file for my Steady State equations.

What is more, looking for some other postings I found a Steady State .m file for an RBC model for the Log_linearized case provided by the user “Sesser” (Steady State File). Given I did not understand much of the content neither I would also appreciate some help on this (maybe it is more appropiate to adapt my Steady State solver of my model on this .m file)

Thanks in advance for any useful help.
