    Difference between 'deterministic' and 'stochastic' ?

    Would anyone pls advise the difference(s) between the 'deterministic' and 'stochastic' process/model/etc ?
    Thanks

    Re: Difference between 'deterministic' and 'stochastic' ?

    A deterministic model/approach has predefined results like we know the possible input.On the other hand a stochastic model/approach has a real time input so that it is not known priorly.A possible example can be the diffeence between digital filters like IIR/FIR and Kalman filters.

    deterministic = non-random (everything values, behavior known exactly)
    stochastic = random (something are not known exactly, only explained in terms of probabilities)

    Difference between 'deterministic' and 'stochastic' ?

    So, do you guy agree that it's more challenging to model stochastic process?

    hi

    stochastic process is more difficult to be modeled and simulated..........and in complex systems u may have to neglect some variables to be able to use the model

    Exactly modeling a stochastic model involves difficulty as only here the adaptation is brought in.whenever the system is said to possess adaptive nature framing a model to explain its behaviour becomes tougher.The best example for adaptation is modeling synapse in neurons which is subjected to adaptation.
