Consider the following equation of motion  
x¨+2αx[˙1+ηt]+Ω2x[1+ξt]=ζt
(1)
where ξt,ηt,ζt are Gaussian white noises (in the Stratonovich sense) with spectral densities Kξξ,Kηη,Kζζ, respectively. The two parametric white noises, ηt and ξt, are correlated, with cross-spectral density Kξη. The objective is to obtain the spectral density (PSD) of the response xt,...
