"Hands-on Computing with RunGTAP and WinGEM To Introduce GTAP and GEMPACK"
by Pearson, Ken and Mark Horridge

In this document we give several examples of hands-on computing you can carry out to familiarize yourself with the RunGTAP and GEMPACK software. In Part A, the Examples are directed at finding out about the data in a GTAP data base. In Part B, the Examples are directed at carrying out simulations with GTAP. Part C describes how you can make a new version (that is, aggregation of the GTAP data base) for use with RunGTAP. Part D assumes you already know something of GEMPACK -- it tells how you can adapt and run your own economic models within RunGTAP. In Part E, we tell you how can find out more about RunGTAP and GEMPACK, and mention hands-on computing you may like to try with models other than GTAP.
Appendix A (not used at the Short Course) gives detailed instructions for carrying out GTAP simulations under WinGEM rather than via RunGTAP.
This document is designed for use at the GTAP Short Course held in August 2003 at Purdue University. It can also be used after the course by participants in conjunction with the RunGTAP and GEMPACK software they take home with them from the course. And, with certain limitations mentioned in the next paragraph, this document will also be very useful to others learning to use RunGTAP.
