Finally small letters indicate deviations of variables from steady states. Thus at = log(At / A).
The solutions to this problem after linearization of the Euler equations are laws of motion for the state variables kt, nt, at and gt as well as linear relations connecting other variables such as yt,to these states. With the parameter values in Table A it is possible to compute numerical values for these relations and they are presented in the text. The parameter συ in the table arises from the assumption that there are measurement errors in hours worked.
