"So how about "stochastic logic"? Is that name taken?"

This is interesting because for some time I have been conducting
thought experiments on a similar idea regarding sets, which I
wanted to call 'stochastic sets'. The reason I chose that name
is that it mirrors the terminology used for finite state
machines. Fuzzy automata are just like the regular variety,
except that the fuzzy automata may enter a number of states,
simultaneously, to varying degrees. A stochastic automata only
enters one state at a time, but its transition between states is
probabilistic. My idea for 'stochastic sets' was specifically in
connection with representation of classes in machine learning,
and would have been a counterpart for fuzzy and rough sets.
