The determination of autoregressive (AR) and autoregressive moving average (ARMA) algorithms for simulating realizations of two-dimensional random fields with a specified (target) power spectrum is examined. The form of both of these models is justified first by considering infinite-variate vector processes of appropriate spectral matrix. Next, the AR parameters are selected to achieve the minimum of a positive integral. Then, a technique is formulated to derive an ARMA simulation algorithm from the prior AR approximation by relying on the minimization of frequency domain errors. Finally, these procedures are critically assessed and an example of application is presented.
