I was doing research in large scale air pollutioning for some time. In
this area are usually considered 5 different physical processes with
very different time scales. From the mathematical modeling one gets,
say, 30-70 equations. The system cannot be treated directly with
classical PDE or ODE methods. These methods are used together with a
procedure called "splitting". E.g. one simulates separately first the
advection, then the chemistry; then again the advection, then the
chemistry, and so on. Now I find the idea to use the cellular automata
to skip the splitting as fabulous and exciting, :) but probably I like
mathematics too much. And at least in this researh area cellular
automata are not standard Numerical methods.
