# 8. Examples¶

Dynare comes with a database of example `.mod`

files, which are
designed to show a broad range of Dynare features, and are taken from
academic papers for most of them. You should have these files in the
`examples`

subdirectory of your distribution.

Here is a short list of the examples included. For a more complete description, please refer to the comments inside the files themselves.

`ramst.mod`

An elementary real business cycle (RBC) model, simulated in a deterministic setup.

`example1.mod`

`example2.mod`

Two examples of a small RBC model in a stochastic setup, presented in

Collard (2001)(see the file`guide.pdf`

which comes with Dynare).

`example3.mod`

A small RBC model in a stochastic setup, presented in

Collard (2001). The steady state is solved analytically using the`steady_state_model`

block (see`steady_state_model`

).

`fs2000.mod`

A cash in advance model, estimated by

Schorfheide (2000). The file shows how to use Dynare for estimation.

`fs2000_nonstationary.mod`

The same model than

`fs2000.mod`

, but written in non-stationary form. Detrending of the equations is done by Dynare.

`bkk.mod`

Multi-country RBC model with time to build, presented in

Backus, Kehoe and Kydland (1992). The file shows how to use Dynare’s macro processor.

`agtrend.mod`

Small open economy RBC model with shocks to the growth trend, presented in

Aguiar and Gopinath (2004).

`Gali_2015.mod`

Basic New Keynesian model of

Galí (2015), Chapter 3 showing how to i) use “system prior”-type prior restrictions as inAndrle and Plašil (2018)and ii) run prior/posterior-functions.

`NK_baseline.mod`

Baseline New Keynesian Model estimated in

Fernández-Villaverde (2010). It demonstrates how to use an explicit steady state file to update parameters and call a numerical solver.

`Occbin_example.mod`

RBC model with two occasionally binding constraints. Demonstrates how to set up Occbin.

`Ramsey_Example.mod`

File demonstrating how to conduct optimal policy experiments in a simple New Keynesian model either under commitment (Ramsey) or using optimal simple rules (OSR)

`Ramsey_steady_file.mod`

File demonstrating how to conduct optimal policy experiments in a simple New Keynesian model under commitment (Ramsey) with a user-defined conditional steady state file
