<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 pseudo-random numbers. Evolutionary computation uses probabilistic processes to generate new (potential) solutions to a problem.

See also deterministic, non-probabilistic.
