Error Handling "Near Singular Matrix" State Space Model

Postby mnardella » Fri Mar 30, 2018 8:46 am

The initialization of a state space model using random seeds can lead to the following error "Near Singular Matrix..."

Does exist a flag variable "to catch" the occurrence of this error?
Or does anyone know any programming trick to "to catch" this error into a 'dummy' variable?

Could just use the setmaxerrs and @errorcount commands to catch an error
