Stochastic & Chaotic

    Can we consider a stochastic process being chaotic?

    consider evolution of only two particular systems with closed initial states (not ensemble or statistical properties of the system)

    Not in general- a 'chaotic' system has specific properties associated with it.

    The hamiltonian of a stochastic system have a random variable so the solutions of the hamilton equations cannot be deterministic. The hamiltonians of a chaotics systems do not have random variable so the solutions of the hamilton equations are deterministic. You have to transform your deterministic hamiltonian into a hamiltonian with a random variable and I think that is imposible.
