micEconCES: Analysis with the Constant Elasticity of Substitution (CES) Function

Tools for econometric analysis and economic modelling with the traditional two-input Constant Elasticity of Substitution (CES) function and with nested CES functions with three and four inputs. The econometric estimation can be done by the Kmenta approximation, or non-linear least-squares using various gradient-based or global optimisation algorithms. Some of these algorithms can constrain the parameters to certain ranges, e.g. economically meaningful values. Furthermore, the non-linear least-squares estimation can be combined with a grid-search for the rho-parameter(s). The estimation methods are described in Henningsen et al. (2021) <doi:10.4337/9781788976480.00030>.
