  • Jesús Fernández-Villaverde
  • Juan F. Rubio Ramírez
  • Frank Schorfheide

This paper provides an overview of solution and estimation techniques for dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models. We cover the foundations of numerical approximation techniques as well as statistical inference and survey the latest developments in the field.
