The purpose of this book is to provide the fundamentals of MFree methods in as much detail as possible. Some typical MFree methods, such as EFG, MLPG, RPIM, and LRPIM, are discussed in great detail. The detailed numerical implementations and programming for these methods are also provided. In addition, the MFree collocation (strong-form) methods are also detailed. Many well-tested computer source codes for MFree methods are provided. The application and the performance of the codes provided can be checked using the examples attached. Input and output files are provided in table form for easy verification of the codes. All computer codes are developed by the authors based on existing numerical techniques for FEM and the standard numerical analysis. These codes consist of most of the basic MFree techniques, and can be easily extended to other variations of more complex procedures of MFree methods.
Releasing this set of source codes is to suit the needs of readers for an easy comprehension, understanding, quick implementation, practical applications of the existing MFree methods, and further improvement and development of their own MFree methods. All source codes provided in this book are developed and tested based on the MS Windows and MS Developer Studio 97 (Visual FORTRAN Professional Edition 5.0.A) on a personal computer. After slight revisions, these programs can also be executed in other platforms and systems, such as the UNIX system on workstations. In our research group these codes are frequently ported between the Windows and UNIX systems, and there has been no technical problem.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
