What's the grammar of "with such transitions governed"?

It's not uncommon to use *with* to introduce a clause like this: > A particle's energy state jumps about randomly, with such transitions governed by the temperature of the system. What's the grammar rule validating this expression and the use of *with* with the past participle? If there is grammatical terminology to describe this, that would be preferred.
