Could Laplace's Demon be considered a Markov Process?

#1
Hello everyone, I'm a new member. I teach chemistry and publish writing about science, which latter aim has motivated this post.

My understanding of Laplace's Demon is that the future could be predicted if the precise positions and momenta of every atom in the universe were known at a single instant. In that sense, knowledge of the prior history of the atoms would be unnecessary to make the prediction. As such, can it be considered a Markov process? On the other hand, I think it's also true that Markov processes concern events that are at least partially random, which runs contrary to Laplace's assertion.

I'd be really grateful for any help with this.
