This chapter describes the (1) model structure of AIM/CGE (Asia-Pacific Integrated Model/Computable General Equilibrium), (2) data structure (social accounting matrix (SAM)), and (3) formula and list of sets, parameters, equations, and variables. The aim of this chapter is to present all equations written in the model which is used in the other chapter’s analysis and make the analysis made in this book transparent.
