A Collocation Method Using Radial Polynomials for Solving Partial Differential Equations

Abstract: In this article, a collocation method using radial polynomials (RPs) based on the multiquadric (MQ) radial basis function (RBF) for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) is proposed. The new global RPs include only even order radial terms formulated from the binomial series using the Taylor series expansion of the MQ RBF. Similar to the MQ RBF, the RPs is infinitely smooth and differentiable. The proposed RPs may be regarded as the equivalent expression of the MQ RBF in series form in which no any extra shape parameter is required. Accordingly, the challenging task for finding the optimal shape parameter in the Kansa method is avoided. Several numerical implementations, including problems in two and three dimensions, are conducted to demonstrate the accuracy and robustness of the proposed method. The results depict that the method may find solutions with high accuracy, while the radial polynomial terms is greater than 6. Finally, our method may obtain more accurate results than the Kansa method.
