Abstract: We describe and test numerically an adaptive meshless generalized finite difference method based on radial basis functions that competes well with the finite element method on standard benchmark problems with reentrant corners of the boundary, sharp peaks and rapid oscillations in the neighborhood of an isolated point. This is achieved thanks to significant improvements introduced into the earlier algorithms of [Oleg Davydov and Dang Thi Oanh, Adaptive meshless centers and RBF stencils for Poisson equation, Journal of Computational Physics, 230:287--304, 2011], including a new error indicator of Zienkiewicz-Zhu type.
