|(probability)||probabilistic - Relating to, or governed by, probability. The
behaviour of a probabilistic system cannot be predicted
exactly but the probability of certain behaviours is known.
Such systems may be simulated using pseudo-random numbers.
Evolutionary computation uses probabilistic processes to
generate new (potential) solutions to a problem.|
