Alexis Akira Toda

Associate Professor of Economics

I am interested in the foundation of numerical methods used in economic modeling. Relevant publications include "Discrete Approximations of Continuous Distributions by Maximum Entropy (, "Discretizing Distributions with Exact Moments: Error Estimate and Convergence Analysis" (, "Discretizing Nonlinear, Non-Gaussian Markov Processes with Exact Conditional Moments" (, "Data-based Automatic Discretization of Nonparametric Distributions" (, among others.
