Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. Collect, store and access data in a systematic manner
2. Optimize functions using numerical methods
3. Program and optimize nonstandard log-likelihood functions
4. Assess (model) uncertainty using computer intensive methods such as bootstrap
Omschrijving Improvements in data storage and computing power enable researchers to address economic and econometric issues that were impossible to address ten years ago. Also, numerical methods and simulation enable theorists to understand their models better. In this course, we focus on data, numerical methods to answer questions relevant to these data, and (econometric) analysis of these data.
