External Steady State - How does it work?


I am new to Dynare and have been struggling on finding examples on how to obtain the steady state using an external file. Do you know where I could find any examples and guidance?


You can find an example here:
[External MATLAB function in Dynare)


Unfortunately, the example cited in this reference does not seem to work under Dynare 4.3.1. When I tried it, I received the following error message
??? Error using ==> print_info at 36
The generalized Schur (QZ) decomposition failed. For more information, see the documentation for Lapack function

We consider a particle, confined to a moving harmonic potential, under the influence of friction and external asymmetric Poissonian shot noise (PSN). We study the fluctuations of the work done to maintain this system in a nonequilibrium steady state. PSN generalizes the usual Gaussian noise and can be considered to be a paradigm of external noise, where fluctuation and dissipation originate from physically independent mechanisms.
