Please could you help me what does this mean and what to da with that?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Kateryna, We cannot help if you do not post your mod file… Did you read this post?

Best, Stéphane.

Hi, thank you for the reply,

As in this post, you may have a scaling problem in the Jacobian matrix of your model evaluated at the deterministic steady state. The smaller value in this jacobian matrix is of order 1e-5 while the bigger is of order 1e3. In this case dgges in not able to compute the generalized schur decomposition. I think that the problem is related to the steady state value of b2. This value is too big compared to the other steady state values. I don’t know the model, but shouldn’t you have a constraint between exp(b1) and exp(b2) ?
