### A probabilistic version of the Frequent Hypercyclicity Criterion

For a bounded operator T on a separable infinite-dimensional Banach space X, we give a "random" criterion not involving ergodic theory which implies that T is frequently hypercyclic: there exists a vector x such that for every non-empty open subset U of X, the set of integers n such that Tⁿx belongs to U, has positive lower density. This gives a connection between two different methods for obtaining the frequent hypercyclicity of operators.
