      Summary. This chapter provides an introduction to perturbation, projection, value function iteration, Smolyak, endogeneous grid and envelope condition methods, parallel computation, supercomputers, GPUs and many other methods and shows how to use these methods to solve dynamic stochastic economic models with hundreds of state variables.
