I have a question about simult_


Is using “simult_” the same as writing the name of the endogenous variables after stoch_simul?
To be more precise, in a command:

stoch_simul(order=3,pruning,periods=0,irf=0,periods=1000,drop=100) c h i;

I am simulating variables for c, h, and i. What is the difference between that and using simult_?


The simult_-function is the Matlab function Dynare internally uses to generate stochastic simulations. Whenever you use stoch_simul it will rely on this function with some default settings. Using the function yourself allows to control all settings/experiments in detail.


Thank you for this
