A system whose behavior does not change significantly in time.
Its behavior is thus highly predictable.
Such a system is not learning by experience and is generally submitted to thight controls. Most simple man-made systems were trivial, being submitted to also simple regulators or controls. New man-made systems tend however now to become non-trivial through the introduction of meta-controls and/or learning devices, as for ex. back-propagation in complex controlling networks.
