I was wondering if someone could explain how to get J_{k + 1, k + 1} , when I attempt I get:

J_{k + 1, k + 1}
= \frac{ \partial p_{k + 1} }{ \partial c_{k + 1} }
= -\rho(\phi-c_{k+1}) = -\rho(c_{k+1} - \phi)

Thanks

As you and I have discussed in PM but also should be noted here: the last equality only holds when the latent distribution is symmetric (around 0).

The math here is a bit sloppy – the arguments to all of the rho terms should be \phi - c_{k} not c_{k}. See the code implementation that immediately follows that defines everything correctly.
