We develop a model program for parallel execution of cellular automata on a multicomputer. The model program is then adapted for simulation of forest fires and numerical solution of Laplace's equation for stationary heat flow. The performance of the parallel program is analyzed and measured on a Computing Surface configured as a matrix of transputers with distributed memory.
