at the manual, the [Dynare Forum](https://forum.dynare.org/) is a good place to
turn. If you're a beginner, odds are someone else has run into the same problem
as you, so make sure you search the forum for similar questions. Otherwise,
feel free to make an account and ask a question yourself. If you're a more
experienced user, heading to the forum from time to time will allow you to
learn the intricacies of Dynare and you might just be able to help out someone
else out!

We organize a weeklong summer school every year in June where we teach students
how to use Dynare. The fee for students is minimal (equal to expenses on
lunches and one dinner) so as to encourage participation. If this interests
you, please keep a look out for the opening of the application period in April.

The Dynare Manual is the best place to go to understand the Dynare syntax,
commands, and options. The `.pdf` and `.html` versions of the manual are
distributed with each Dynare release and also available here:

The database now covers more than 100 models, ranging from small-, medium- and
large-scale DSGE models to earlier-generation New-Keynesian models with
rational expectations and more traditional Keynesian-style models with adaptive
expectations. It includes models of the United States, the Euro Area, Canada,
and several small open emerging economies. Some of the models explicitly
incorporate financial frictions.

This toolbox uses the standard output of Dynare to: (i) plot the Markov chain
Monte Carlo (MCMC), (ii) plot the ergodic distribution of the posterior
distribution, (iii) plot the prior versus the posterior distribution, together
with the mode of the posterior, (iv) assess the convergence of the MCMC chain
through CUSUM procedure, and (v) compare the correlation between the estimated
parameters implied by both the Hessian and the chain. The toolbox makes use of
120
few MATLAB routines of Dynare 4.3.

Originally written by Ondra Kamenik, Dynare++ is a C++ library that computes
higher order approximations of DSGE models via a perturbation method. It is
available as a standalone executable program (shipped with the Dynare
installer) and is also used by Dynare to compute third order approximations.
