Summary:
We have used a novel computer with a novel integration technique to study the evolution of the entire planetary system for nearly 100 million years. This calculation confirms that the evolution of the solar system as a whole is chaotic, with a remarkably short timescale of exponential divergence of about 4 million years. Additional numerical experiments indicate that the dynamical evolution of the Jovian planets is  Read more...

Abstract:

We have used a novel computer with a novel integration technique to study the evolution of the entire planetary system for nearly 100 million years. This calculation confirms that the evolution of the solar system as a whole is chaotic, with a remarkably short timescale of exponential divergence of about 4 million years. Additional numerical experiments indicate that the dynamical evolution of the Jovian planets is chaotic apart from the rest of the system, as is the motion of Pluto.
