We analyze Lennard-Jones systems from the standpoint of variational principles beyond the static framework. In a one-dimensional setting such systems have already been shown to be equivalent to energies of Fracture Mechanics. Here we show that this equivalence can also be given in dynamical terms using the notion of minimizing movements.
