The Method of Fundamental Solutions (MFS) is a boundary-type meshless method for the solution of certain elliptic boundary value problems. In this work, we propose an efficient algorithm for the linear least-squares version of the MFS, when applied to the Dirichlet problem for certain second order elliptic equations in a disk. Various aspects of the method are discussed and a comparison with the standard MFS is carried out. Numerical results are presented.
