Sample text

Once the function is defined, either via the command line window or via a script, it can be called with different arguments. e. ∧ ’. Line [2] defines the variable x and line [3] calls the function fx with some example arguments and stores the outcome in the vector h. Line [4] plots h against x. 3 Calling functions in MATLAB There are basically three ways in which a user-defined function can be used in MATLAB. First, it can be called from the command prompt to generate the desired output. This is done in the following way: >> [outputs] = function_name(inputs).

The economy is said to be in equilibrium, and a common interest rate emerges, when this latter group of agents (think of banks and firms that issue bonds and stocks to finance their investment projects) offers an interest rate at which their aggregate liquidity demand is fulfilled. The higher the interest rate offered, the more agents are willing to postpone consumption, and vice versa. The higher the interest rate required, the lower the liquidity demand from firms, and vice versa. When liquidity demand and liquidity supply meet, the equilibrium is found, and a single interest rate clears the supply and demand for liquidity.

A fifth variable is included which accounts for the variance of the residuals. When doing maximum likelihood optimisation it is almost always the case that the error term variance is estimated along with the other parameters. 14 Note that minus the log likelihood is calculated. This is done because fmincon is designed to find the parameters that minimise the function value. If the built-in optimiser were designed to find parameters that maximise the function value, we would not multiply the objective function by minus one.
