  deterministic
  
     1.  Describes a system whose time evolution can
     be predicted exactly.
  
     Contrast probabilistic.
  
     2.  Describes an algorithm in which the correct
     next step depends only on the current state.  This contrasts
     with an algorithm involving backtracking where at each point
     there may be several possible actions and no way to chose
     between them except by trying each one and backtracking if it
     fails.
