Hi,

I am trying to set a small suport for uniform prior distribution. However, when I set a small support such as:

**stderr gi_obs, uniform_pdf,0,0.01;**

I got the following:

[code]??? Error using ==> chol

Matrix must be positive definite.

Error in ==> metropolis_hastings_initialization at 52

d = chol(vv);

Error in ==> random_walk_metropolis_hastings at 58

nblck, nruns, NewFile, MAX_nruns, d ] = …

Error in ==> dynare_estimation_1 at 871

feval(options_.posterior_sampling_method,‘DsgeLikelihood’,options_.proposal_distribution,xparam1,invhess,bounds,gend,data,…

Error in ==> dynare_estimation at 62

dynare_estimation_1(var_list,varargin{:});

Error in ==> new_formulation at 451

dynare_estimation(var_list_);

Error in ==> dynare at 132

evalin(‘base’,fname) ;

[/code]

On the other hand, if I set a support such as:

**stderr gi_obs, uniform_pdf,0,0.1;**

The estimation works fine. As far as I remember, the support for the uniform distribution, U[a,b], should work with any number from -inf<a,b<inf .

Am I missing something? Thanks
