The boundary element method based on a boundary integral equation has been very successful in computational mechanics. Atluri et al.  recently developed a new meshless method using the local boundary integral equations. It eliminates the tedious step of mesh generation and thus greatly simplifies the numerical computation process. This paper shows the equivalence between the local boundary integral...
