A paper I worked on with JS Chen is now available online. It presents a performance comparison between node-based Galerkin and collocation meshfree methods in terms of accuracy, efficiency, and stability:
Hillman, M., Chen, J. S., Performance Comparison of Nodally Integrated Galerkin Meshfree Methods and Nodally Collocated Strong Form Meshfree Methods, Advances in Computational Plasticity, Volume 46, pp 145-164, 2017.
It can be found here:
Last week, I gave a talk at the Department of Mathematics, Penn State University. The topic was Variational Crimes in Meshfree Methods. In this talk, two non-trivial variational crimes committed in the commonplace employment of meshfree methods were discussed. The information can be found here.
This month, a plenary lecture by J. S. Chen co-authored by me was given and I also gave a talk at the COMPLAS conference at Barcelona, Spain.
The topic of the plenary lecture was Recent Advances in Accelerated and Stabilized Meshfree Method for Modeling Man-made and Natural Disasters. The information can be found here.
The talk by me was "A Smoothed Implicit Gradient Reproducing Kernel Particle Method for Extreme Event Modelling." The information can be found here.
