Methods for simulating dependent sequences of continuous positive-valued random variables with exponential uniform, Gamma, and mixed exponential marginal distributions are given. In most cases the sequences are first-order, linear autoregressive, Markovian processes. A very broad two-parameter family of this type, GNEAR(1), with exponential marginals and both positive and negative correlation is defined and its transformation to a similar multiplicative process with uniform marginals is given. It is shown that for a subclass of this two-parameter family extension to mixed exponential marginals is possible, giving a model of broad applicability for analyzing data and modelling stochastic systems, although negative correlation is more difficult to obtain than in the exponential case. Finally, two schemes for autoregressive sequences with Gamma distributed marginals are outlined. Efficient simulation of some of these schemes is discussed. (Author)
