minimization calculation

Hi, ALL

I have a question about the structure got from a minimization calculation in LAMMPS.
How to identify it is a local minimum or a transition state ? Thanks.

randomize your atom positions and minimize again.
if you were in a transition state, you'll very likely be getting
a different extremum, if not, you will get the same.
