This project is built around a methodological and an application oriented perspective. The methodology defines the common ground among the group members whereas the applications point to the pursued specific developments. Lately the availability of powerful hardware and specialized software has been filling the gap between model complexity and model functionality and applicability. The economist took it includes now numerical methods that work efficiently in solving both mathematical and statistival model of considerable complexity. What we aim to accomplish with this project includes studying new computational development as well as new applications that are computatiion/simulation dependent. The project consits of three main bloks with the some specific lines of work. In the first block, essentially of a methodological nature, we deal with the development and implementation of parallel computational techniques. In the second block we focus on econometric applications to labur market and education whereas in the final blok we study CGE models designed for environmental, fiscal, and bilateral regional applications.
