    Hi Prof.Kindermann,

    I’m studying the last chapter, while I find that the RHS of equation 11.10 should be N_t^{R}=sum(m_j*N_t), while not just sum(m_j). Hope you can check it.

    Kind regards,

    Dear Shengzhi Mao,

    thanks for your comment. But I think the equation is correct, because when we aggregate L_t^s, we also use sum(m_j) and do not multiply it with N_t. In fact, all aggregates in our model are normalized such that the actual population size doesn’t play a role, only the relative population sizes, which are stored in m_j.

    I hope this explains it. Let me know if you disagree.

    Best, Fabian

    I see, if both sides are normalized, that would be okay. Thanks.
