Abstract

1 Introduction Boundary methods for solving elliptic particular differential equations have become well established tools for solving many problems of engineering sci- ence. In particular, Trefffcz-type methods such as the method of fundamen- tal solutions(MFS) have become increasingly popular over the past decade [1, 2]. However, for parabolic and hyperbolic equations the situation is less satisfactory and boundary methods for these equations seen to be less devel- oped. A major difficulty is that the traditional formulations usually require the evaluation of numerous domain integrals which can be time consuming to compute. One way around this is to use Dual Recipr
