Number of Steps

  I have a question on the numsteps(time) of simulation.

Instead of running my minimization or MD simulation for time T, if I break
it into t1, t2, t3.... (T>>t), with output from one carried to the next, am
I doing a big approximation or building up a huge error. I want to follow
this to make things computationally convenient.

I am looking forward for some discussion on this.
Any reference of journal paper or book on this is highly appreciated.
