(full) replication
Explanation:
There are three methods of structuring index funds.

Index Fund
A portfolio of securities structured in such a way that its value will closely follow a nominated market index, eg. an equity index fund may be designed to track the All Ordinaries Index. There are three main methods in use: a) Replication, which involves buying every security in the Index in the correct proportion; b) Stratified sampling, which selects a sample of stocks according to simple criteria, such as size and industry grouping, to achieve an approximate tracking at lower administrative cost; and c) Optimised sampling, which uses a more sophisticated statistical approach involving a risk-matching process to design the best sample of stocks for any particular desired level of tracking accuracy. A fund structured by this method is known as an optimised index fund. Index funds can be designed for equities (domestic or overseas), bonds, or property trusts.

Here are some links where \"full replication\" is used:

Investment Strategies
The Wired® Index Fund will attempt to replicate the performance of the Wired Index™. In managing the Fund, we will generally follow a policy of \"full replication,\" meaning the Fund will generally invest in all 40 component issues that comprise the Wired Index™ in the proportion they are represented within the Index.

Strategy
Because of the large number of securities in the Lehman Aggregate Bond Index which are not available for purchase, full replication of index holdings is not possible.
