I am running a dynare program where in the simulations, even though I fix the seed, if I run it twice, the results change. Before each run, I clear the memory. I’m talking about things like the standard deviation of variables. I ran it on my apple macbook pro, on my unversity’s research computing cluster, and my coauthor ran it on her windows computer. In each instance, the results change.
I am running a dynare program using Matlab version R2016b Dynare 4.3.3 on a macbook pro. My university’s research computing cluster has Matlab R2016a and Dynare 4.3.3.
This is very strange to me. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Any ideas/suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.
