“One of this book's many strengths is its structure, the way theory-based chapters alternate with analytical ones. This will make it an invaluable resource in the classroom.”
Thomas J. Sargent, Hoover Institution, Stanford University
“This book ties together numerical methods with state-of-the-art mathematical tools in a user-friendly way. It should be part of the program in 'math camps' for incoming graduate students in economics and finance. The Matlab programs are a very useful resource for anyone doing applied research.”
Paul D. McNelis, Professor of Economics, Georgetown University
“This book is an important contribution to the rapidly growing literature on computational economics and finance. It provides an extremely well-integrated presentation of dynamic economic models and some of the most effective numerical methods for solving them. It reinforces these ideas by providing illustrative solutions written in Matlab. This book should enable most people who do not have extensive prior background in computation to understand the key methods and ideas, and to actually begin applying these methods to their own problems. I think it will be an essential part of the toolkit of the applied practitioner in economics or finance.”
John Rust, Professor of Economics, University of Maryland
