* Example 1 from F. Collard (2001): "Stochastic simulations with DYNARE:
* A practical guide" (see "guide.pdf" in the documentation directory).
* This file uses the steady_state_model-block to provide analytical steady state values.
* To do so, the equations of the model have been transformed into a non-linear equation in
* labor h. Within the steady_state_model-block, a helper function is called that uses fsolve
* to solve this non-linear equation. The use of the helper function is necessary to avoid
* interference of the Matlab syntax with Dynare's preprocessor. A more complicated alternative
* that provides more flexibility in the type of commands executed and functions called is the use
* of an explicit steady state file. See the NK_baseline.mod in the Examples Folder.
* This mod-file also shows how to use Dynare's capacities to generate TeX-files of the model equations.
* If you want to see the model equations belonging to this mod-file, run it using Dynare
* and then use a TeX-editor to compile the TeX-files generated.
