Here's a collection of some 80's Particle Systems. The 2D liquid solver (1986) is not actually a particle system but it's so interesting that I couldn't leave it out of the compilation.

I'd like to thank's Jerry Weil and Karl Sims for all their attention and help on this research, also to the Particle Skull comunity for all the support.

Here you can check the William T. Reeves paper where the term "Particle System" was first introduced:

You can also read the Karl Sims paper "Particle Animation and Rendering Using Data Parallel Computation" that helped me a lot finding some great 80's content:
