MATLAB for Economics and Econometrics A Beginners Guide
This beginners' guide to MATLAB for economics and econometrics is an updated and extended version of Frain (2010). The examples and illustrations here are based on Matlab version 8.3 (R2014a). It describes the new MATLAB Desktop, contains an introductory MATLAB session showing elementary MATLAB operations, gives details of data input/output, decision and loop structures, elementary plots, describes the LeSage econometrics toolbox and shows how to do maximum likelihood estimation. Various worked examples of the use of MATLAB in economics and econometrics are also given. I see MATLAB not only as a tool for doing economics/econometrics but as an aid to learning economics/econometrics and understanding the use of linear algebra there. This document can also be seen as an introduction to the MATLAB on-line help, manuals and various specialist MATLAB books.
