Abstract: Constructing adequate probability models is a basic problem in studies of controlled evolutionary systems. Three approaches are known nowadays to construct models of such systems. There are some disadvantages of the existing approaches and another approach, based on cybernetics, is proposed. Some features of the cybernetic approach are demonstrated in this paper by solving the well-known independence paradox.
