# Process - (Stochastic|random) process

A stochastic process is a process where the variable is a random variable that is time dependent.

A stochastic process is not deterministic, ie given a particular input, he is: * more likely to produce some outputs * less likely to produce others.

## Example

Example of random variable:

• number of concurrent user
• number of jobs in a queue
• internet traffic
• system available capacity
• stock price
• air temperatur
