We may want to approximate a cluster of bodies into some mass centered at some point.

Shouldn't the solution just converge to zero? (For all of them to crash into each other at some point t very big)

How do we know that they are actually chaotic? What if there is a basis in which they are very well-behaved, i.e consider some sort of Fourier decomposition of their positions over time?
