The wave equation?;). Use of partial differential equations, definite
integrals and Bessel functions. There are some algos you can use
realtime, though they demand alot. 

Use of the Rabenstein algorithm:


Maybe you can chop parts of it up spread them out on the
network?;). Like realtime raytracing projects using 100 CPUs and more.

Have you done any work on non realtime synthesis?. I'm very interested
in this and I'm playing with octave and r now. I don't necessarily
want to recreate a real drum. I'm looking for that dirty sound; the
crushed cardboard box sound, the hit on trashcans and having control
of all it's parameters;).

We can probably do such extensive algorithms realtime in the near
