Abstract

In this paper we apply the newly developed method of particular solutions (MPS) and one-stage method of fundamental solutions (MFS-MPS) for solving fourth-order partial differential equations. We also compare the numerical results of these two methods to the popular Kansas method. Numerical results in the 2D and the 3D show that the MFS-MPS outperformed the MPS and Kansas method. However, the MPS and Kansas method are easier in terms of implementation. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
