### GCIDERate this definition:0.0 / 0 votes

(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. 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.

1. Stochastic

In probability theory, a stochastic system is one whose state is non-deterministic. The subsequent state of a stochastic system is determined both by the system's predictable actions and by a random element. A stochastic process is one whose behavior is non-deterministic; it can be thought of as a sequence of random variables. Any system or process that can be analyzed using probability theory is stochastic. Stochastic systems and processes play a fundamental role in mathematical models of phenomena in many fields of science, engineering, and economics. Stochastic comes from the Greek word στόχος, which means "aim". It also denotes a target stick; the pattern of arrows around a target stick stuck in a hillside is representative of what is stochastic.
