Dear all,

when I specify a prior with an exponential distribution (as special case of the gamma distribution), mean and standard deviation should be equal to 1/lambda. However, e.g. when I set lambda = 10 (and thus mean and st. dev equal to 0.1), Dynare tells me that the prior distribution for that parameter has unbounded density (even though the exponential distribution has no vertical asymptote). This is, however, not the case for lambda <= 1.

Is this a bug, or am I getting something wrong here?

Thanks in advance!
