Multimode lasing in a fully chaotic cavity is investigated numerically by using a nonlinear dynamics model. We report a transition process from single-mode lasing to multimode lasing and reveal interactions among the lasing modes. In particular, both mode-pulling and mode-pushing interactions are shown to decrease the number of effective lasing modes. In addition, coexistence of different types of attractors of the final lasing states is numerically confirmed.
