Heuristics - Definition

Heuristics refers to a method of analyzing outcome through comparison to previously recognized patterns. It pertains to the process of gaining knowledge or some desired result by intelligent guesswork rather than by following a preestablished formula. For example, an antivirus program, familiar with basic virus behavior, such as deleting files in sequence, could use heuristics to identify unknown virus strains by their behavior.
