Sample models

The following examples are intended to help users get started using gEcon package. The majority of these models has been written for testing purposes during gEcon development and their results have been compared to those obtained in other software.

In order to run these models, save them (.gcn files with accompanying .R scripts) on disk, load gEcon package under R, and run the accompanying R scripts (in the same directory, after setting R working directory there).

For information about the language and the R interface please refer to the Users' guide, which can be found under the documentation tab.

Unless otherwise stated, the models are distributed under the same licence as gEcon package, which can be found here.
