Material for students


My guidelines for thesis supervision. Please, read before contacting my chair. Some guidelines on how to write a literature based seminar paper may also be helpful when writing a Master thesis. For formatting suggestions, see the \(\LaTeX\) section below.


I created a template for students who want to get started with LaTeX. Read the "Getting Started" part of the wikibook first. Then have a look at the following files: .tex (with explanations of common usage), .bib (bibliography), example graphic, .pdf (the compiled output), plain .tex template. If the use of BibTeX for citations is unclear, check Martin Osborne's guide.

Numerical tools for economists

I created some jupyter notebooks that explain how you can make professionally looking plots, numerically solve maximization problems and numerically solve (systems of) equations. I think all of this can be extremely helpful when writing a seminar paper or a thesis. The backend for all this is the julia programming language but no prior knowledge of programming is required. The notebooks can be found here. If you want to learn programming in julia from scratch, you may want to check out this tutorial. (For, more examples where Julia is used to solve problems in (macro)economics, see here.)
