Hi everybody

when i estimate a dsge model with news shocks like grohe and uribe(2008 nber working paper), i find problems as follow:

Configuring Dynare …

[mex] Generalized QZ.

[mex] Sylvester equation solution.

[mex] Kronecker products.

[mex] Sparse kronecker products.

Starting Dynare …

Starting preprocessing of the model file …

27 equation(s) found

Processing derivation …

Processing Order 1… done

Processing Order 2… done

Processing outputs …

Preprocessing completed.

Starting Matlab computing …

??? Attempted to access k(1); index out of bounds because numel(k)=0.

Error in ==> draw_prior_density at 114

binf = abscissa(k(1));

Error in ==> plot_priors at 135

[x,f,abscissa,dens,binf,bsup] = draw_prior_density(i);

Error in ==> dynare_estimation_1 at 92

plot_priors

Error in ==> dynare_estimation at 62

dynare_estimation_1(var_list,varargin{:});

Error in ==> dsge_news_est at 350

dynare_estimation(var_list_);

Error in ==> dynare at 102

evalin(‘base’,fname) ;

I am not be able to find the source of the problem. Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!!!
