The probabilistic modeling of fatigue crack growth is reviewed, primarily from 1980 to the present. Attention is directed to evolutionary models that start with the randomization of a deterministic differential equation by the introduction of random variables or random functions, and to models that directly generate the evolution of distributions. As a result of the statistical analysis of data, reasons are advanced in favor of increasing the dimension of the observables employed.
