Abstract

The zip-file contains the MATLAB 5.0 Code: ode45ext.m, a modified version of Matlab's ODE45.M R-K-algorithm to allow for backward integration, ramsey.m, the neoclassical growth model, and ramsdot.m, a function file containing the ODE for ramsey.m. ode45mod.m, A further modified version of ODE45.M, which allows to specify accuracy in approximation of the initial value (k0). ramsey2.m, the neoclassical growth model for Ode45mod, and ramsdot2.m, a function file containing the ODE for ramsey2.m. perli.m, the general two-sector growth model according to Benhabib and Perli (1994), and perlipol.m, function file containing the ODE for perli.m.
