Abstract : In this paper, we present some investigations on the parallelization of stochastic Lagrangian simulations. The challenge is the proper management of the random numbers. We review two different object-oriented strategies: to draw the random numbers on the fly within each MPI's process or to use a different random number generator for each simulated path. We show the benefits of the second technique which is implemented in the PALMTREE software developed by the Project-team Sage of Inria Rennes. The efficiency of PALMTREE is demonstrated on two classical examples.
