deterministic methods

1. n. [Reservoir Characterization]
Techniques that use equations or algorithms that have been previously developed for similar situations. These methods do not involve stochastic or statistical approaches. Deterministic methods are generally easier and faster to apply and readily lend themselves to computer applications. However, they may not provide the most detailed or the most accurate reservoir models.
