International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering Accepted Manuscript. R. Silva-Valenzuela, A. Ortiz-Bernardin, N. Sukumar, E. Artioli,  N. Hitschfeld-Kahler Abstract In this paper, we present a novel nodal integration scheme for meshfree Galerkin methods that draws on the mathematical framework of the virtual element method. We adopt linear maximum-entropy basis functions for the discretization of

A. Ortiz-Bernardin, A. Russo, N. Sukumar, “Consistent and stable meshfree Galerkin methods using the virtual element decomposition,” submitted. ABSTRACT Over the past two decades, meshfree methods have undergone significant development as a numerical tool to solve partial differential equations (PDEs). In contrast to finite elements, the basis functions in meshfree method are smooth (nonpolynomial functions),
