  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
