<*probability*> 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 pseudorandom numbers.
Evolutionary computation uses probabilistic processes to
generate new (potential) solutions to a problem.

See also deterministic, non-probabilistic.
