A predicate logic of probability, close to logics of probability of Halpern and al., is introduced. Our main result concerns the following model-checking problem: deciding whether a given formula holds on the structure defined by a given Finite Probabilistic Process. We show that this model-checking problem is decidable for a rather large subclass of formulas of a second-order monadic logic of probability. We discuss also the decidability of satisfiability and compare our logic of probability with the probabilistic temporal logic $pCTL^*$ introduced by Hansson and Jonsson.
