Useful Matlab Resources

My dream is that Julia completely replaces Matlab. Until then:
  • CompEcon. Old and not open-source, but useful.
  • Chebfun . Powerful approach to solving functional equations
  • Tomlab. Commerical matlab optimizer framework that has allows me to solve complicated problems. I typically use NPSOL and Knitro with auto-differentiation using MAD.

Useful Julia Resources

A few useful links for economists: For those trying to decide the right time to start Julia, consider watching github to see how radically it is going to change, and important breaking changes.
