Abstract: The dynamics of the quadruple system GG Tauri is investigated using a new symplectic integrator dedicated to multiple stellar systems. This study shows that the ring shape of the circumbinary disk orbiting the GG Tau A pair can be well explained as resulting from the gravitational sculpting. The dynamics of the outer pair (GG Tau B) is highly chaotic and close to instability. Retrograde orbits are more stable.
