A new stochastic vector simulation technique which realizes prescribed zero-mean vector and covariance matrix with a substantially smaller sample size than that of other existing methods has developed. The method utilizes the modal decomposition of the covariance matrix and the spectral representation of random processes. The ensemble-averaged means and covariance matrix and sample distribution by the proposed method are most favorably compared with those by the standard method.
