Random Variables

WithVerônica Y. Kataoka, Irene M. Cazorla, Hugo Hernandez

A phenomenon is deterministic when we already know it and can predict its result (temperature of boiling in water). To describe those phenomena, deterministic models are proposed, indicating precise relationships between variables, where one of them is determined by the other. For example, the gravitational attraction between two objects is direct proportional to their masses and inversely proportion to the distance between them.
