Lectures
These lectures will cover the estimation of linear and nonlinear dynamic equilibrium models. The first lecture will take place on Thursday, May 11 at 3:30 p.m. and will cover linear models. The second lecture will take place on Friday, May 12 at 3:30 p.m. and will cover nonlinear models. Each lecture will last about 75 minutes.

Slides
Slides for both lectures are available here: Lecture 1 and Lecture 2.
