Simulating a Brownian Excursion using a Brownian Bridge?

I would like to simulate a Brownian excursion process (a Brownian motion that is conditioned always be positive when $0 \lt t \lt 1$ to $0$ at $t=1$). Since a Brownian excursion process is a Brownian ...

Geometric Brownian motion without drift

Let's say we have geometric Brownian motion: $$ dS_t = \mu S_tdt + \sigma S_tdW_t $$ Then the SDE becomes: $$ S_t = S_0\exp\left(\left(\mu - \frac{\sigma^2}{2}\right)t + \sigma W_t\right) $$ Say $\mu$ ...
