Meshfree collocation solution of boundary value problems via interpolating moving least squares. (English) Zbl 1105.65356
Summary: A meshfree interpolating moving least squares (IMLS) method based on singular weights for the solution of partial differential equations. Due to the specific singular choice of weight functions, which is needed to guarantee the interpolation, there arises a problem of finding the inverse of the occurring singular matrix. The inverse is carried out using a regularization of weight functions. It turns out that a stable inverse is obtained by considering the vanishing regularization parameter.
Moreover, the use of this perturbation technique allows the correct evaluation of all necessary derivatives in interpolation points at a reasonable cost.
Unlike standard kernel functions used in EFGM, RKPM, etc., the singular kernel functions lead to really interpolating functions which satisfy the Kronecker-delta property. They can be used for enforcement of Dirichlet boundary conditions when solving boundary value problems (BVPs).
Solution to a model BVP as well as an experimental convergence study of the method to analytical solutions, confirming the mathematical derivations, are given.
