%X Cellular automata are used to solve partial differential
equations (PDE) discretized on a non\-regular grid. Boolean
representations of real numbers are introduced and logical
intrinsic computer functions are used to achieve algebraic
operations of the finite difference algorithm. In a first
step the method is briefly explained and then implementation
is described. For diffusion or convection problems,
preliminary computations on a Cray\-XMP18 and on a network
of T800 Transputers were done.
