   3. (Statistics) of or pertaining to a process in which a
      series of calculations, selections, or observations are
      made, each one being randomly determined as a sample from
      a probability distribution.

   Note: Where physical phenomena are modelled as a stochastic
         process, each subsequent calculation of a series may
         depend on the result of the previous calculation, as in
         the modelling of the process of diffusion of molecules.
         Many series may be calculated, and the results
         averaged, to estimate the most likely result. See also
         Markov chain.
         [PJC] -- sto*chas"tic*al*ly, adv.

3. The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018)

    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.
