Advances in The MLPG Meshless Methods

Edited by Satya N. Atluri and Jan Sladek

Meshless methods belong to one of the most progressively developed aspects of computer modeling in engineering and sciences. Therefore, the number of new results in this field is growing significantly during the past few years. It is a natural need to consolidate these results in to Monographs of this type, to promote the further development of meshless methods.
