Advanced Programming in Quantitative Economics

when 20 August 2012 - 24 August 2012
duration 1 week
credits 5 ECTS
fee EUR 1

This course presents the steps needed for advanced programming in the quantitative fields of Economics, from the very concept of a calculational task, through the evaluation of necessary inputs, outputs, division in subtasks, to the final implementation. In this course the Ox programming language is used, and its concepts explained in detail, but conceptually the course will be relevant for any computer programming language. The course provides both theory and practice, switching between lecture and hands-on format. Around the Ox language, several packages, interfaces, and even links to Gauss and C are discussed.
