# Create a functional basis processΒΆ

The objective of this example is to define a multivariate stochastic process of dimension where , as a linear combination of deterministic functions :

where is a random vector of dimension .

We suppose that is discretized on the mesh wich has vertices.

A realization of on consists in generating a realization of the random vector and in evaluating the functions on the mesh .

If we note the realization of , where , we have:
