Abstract: We study the dynamics of the map obtained by applying Euler's method with stepsize to the central force problem. We prove that, for *any* , the nonwandering set of contains a subset on which the dynamics of are topologically semiconjugate to a subshift of finite type. The subshift has positive topological entropy, hence so does .
