Mixing of particles by chaotic flow fields was simulated on the Connection Machine. We assigned each cell to the processor and kept the coordinates of particles residing on the cell in the local memory of the processor. This approach implies the exchange between the local memories, when a particle moves from one cell to another. Approximately 105 particles were injected into a time-dependent flow field obtained by solving the nonlinear system of PDEs, describing turbulent thermal convection. The flow field was calculated on CRAY and data were transferred to CM-200 through high-speed HIPPI channel.
