How do we solve and estimate dynamic games with multiple equilibria? How do we structually estimate large-scale dynamic programming equilibrium models? Why use Python for analysis and solving models? What is Julia for economists?
The Centre for Computational Economics (CCE) gathers researchers from both our location at the Department of Economics as well as from external institutions. Our common focal point is our interests in structural micro-econometrics and computational economics. We focus on the computational challenges in economics generally, but pay particular emphasis to research on dynamic games and dynamic programming models as well as their empirical applications to wide range of fields: industrial organization, urban economics, economics of transportation, family economics and labor economics.
Examples of active research areas at CCE includes models of retirement behavior and household consumption of couples, the dynamics of firm competition and investment, as well as the modeling of car ownership, car usage, residential locations and house prices.
