Modelling noise in Mathematica

  1. Feb 5, 2010 #1
    Given a power spectral density Sn(f) (or alternatively the autocorrelation function), is there a way to output random noise in Mathematica? Not sure if anyone here will know this but it's worth a try.

    Well, you could use Random[NormalDistribution[...]] to generate white noise and then apply an FFT, filter it with your spectral density, and then inverse FFT to get back the original noise. Would that work?

    How do you ?
