“Dynamic
Choice with Constant SourceDependent Relative Risk Aversion” (undergoing revision)
“Smooth
Ambiguity Aversion Toward Small Risks and ContinuousTime Recursive Utility”
Journal of Political Economy,
August 2013. You can experiment with the code that generates
the examples of Section 2 by copying and pasting this F#
script into this web page (no installation
needed).
Equivalent Scala program.
These are programs relying on mutable state; here are purely functional
versions in Scala
and Haskell. (To run efficiently, compile the Haskell version using
“ghc make –O2 funcRec.hs”.)
