# Can a molecular dynamics simulation enter a limit cycle?

• A
In my rough understanding Molecular Dynamics using Classical Newtonian mechanics is a 6N dimensional non linear system. 6N dimension because you have 3 position vectors and 3 momentum vectors for each N particles. Nonlinearity because of the terms in force fields. In principle this system can exhibit chaos. Also is there any small probability such that the system enters a periodic attractor ?
