Point Interpolation Methods based on Weakened-Weak Formulations

Naísses Z. Lima, Renato C. Mesquita

Abstract


This paper presents a study of meshless Point Interpolation Methods based on weakened-weak forms. The mathematical formulations of the methods are presented as well as the procedures for the support nodes selection called T-schemes. The numerical results are shown for four different types of electromagnetic static problems in order to ponctuate the characteristics of the approximation generated by these new methods.
