The quark flux-tube model suggests that quarks interact in colourless groups of either two or three. The selection of which quarks will interact with which is based on minimizing the amount of string used to connect them. A molecular dynamics simulation of such a classical system of forces is being worked on in the hope of determining if a liquid crystal phase will occur. The numerical problems arising from trying to deal with such a non-analytic force are discussed herein.
