Consistent and stable meshfree Galerkin methods using the virtual element decomposition

International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering Volume 112, Issue 7, 2017, pp 655-684 A. Ortiz-Bernardin, A. Russo, N. Sukumar 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 methods are smooth (nonpolynomial functions),…
