An attempt is made to characterize and synthesize engineered surfaces. The proposed method, based on two-dimensional difference equations and two-dimensional linear autoregressive models, is not only an analytical tool to characterize but also to generate/synthesize three-dimensional surfaces with desired properties. The developed method expresses important three-dimensional surface characteristics such as the autocorrelation or power spectrum density functions in terms of the two-dimensional autoregressive coefficients.
