>From what you've written I'm assuming you want the probability that a
random normal variable will exceed X (say X=2) after n samples.
Be F[x] your cumulative probability distribution for your normal
distribution, this is
F[x]=Prob{X<=x}
where X is your stochastic variable, if you consider your time to be
discrete you can use extreme value theory to calculate the probability
of exceeding X after n steps
Prob{X_n > x} = 1-F[x]^n
This might give a good enough approximation. For a truly continuous
stochastic process this would a bit more complicated as you have to
define the step size as a function of dt..
