Description

These notes describe the solution of several sample dynamic stochastic optimization problems using Mathematica. The first problem solved is a consumption/saving problem, while the second problem solved is a two-state-variable consumption/saving problem where the second state variable is the stock of habits that the consumer is used to satisfying. The third problem adds portfolio choice between a safe and a risky asset to the first problem, and shows how to solve this multiple-control problem. The tricks and techniques used in solving these problems have broad applicability to many dynamic stochastic optimization problems.
