## Main Question or Discussion Point

Say I'm simulating the movements of two interacting atoms. Could this system have the markov property (the future positions of the atoms depend only on the current position, not the past)?

What's got me on the fence are the atoms' momentums: it's a property of the present state (at time t, the momentum is p), but its value depends on past states. So does anyone know if a system like this could have the markov property?

Thanks
