The domain of numerical simulation is a place where the parallelization of numerical code is common. The definition of a numerical context means the configuration of resources such as memory, processor load and communication graph, with an evolving feature: the resources availability. A feature is often missing: the adaptability. It is not predictable and the adaptable aspect is essential. Without calling into question these implementations of these codes, we create an adaptive use of these

This paper offers a new architecture, a mobile computing architecture, based on mobile agents and JavaSpace. At the end of this paper, we apply our architecture to several case studies and obtain our first results.
