P are independent normal variates N(µi , σi2 ),i = 1, . . , p, then lognormal variates ℓ i ,i = 1, . . , p can be generated using the transformation ℓ i = exp(z i ), i = 1, . . 9) and the variance is V ar[x i ] = s2i = exp(2µi + σi2 ) exp(σi2 ) − 1 . 11) or equivalently σi2 = log 1 + s2i m¯ i 2 . 12) A lognormal distribution consisting of p independent variates with means m¯ i ,i = 1, . . , p and variances s2i ,i = 1, . . , p can thus be generated using the following procedure. First, generate the p independent normal variates z i ∼ N(µi , σi2 ), i = 1, .

2) where A and B are n element vectors respectively containing the constants, ai ,i = 1, . . , n and bi ,i = 1, . . , n. The stochastic vector dX contains the n stochastic variables X i ,i = 1, . . , n. We will assume that the n element random vector dZ is drawn from a ˆ That multivariate normal distribution with zero mean and covariance matrix C. is we can write ˆ dZ ∼ N(0, C). Since Cˆii = V ar[dZi ] = 1, i = 1, . . , n, the diagonal elements of Cˆ are all unity and the matrix Cˆ is in fact a correlation matrix with off-diagonal elements given by Cˆi j = E[dZi dZ j ] = ρi, j , i = 1, .
