The Fokker Planck Equation (FPE) is a partial differential equation for the probability density and transition probability of a random process. Owing to its broad range of
applications, the FPE has been an interesting research topic. Recently, Radial basis functions (RBFs) have emerged as a powerful numerical tool for solving partial differential equations and this paper reports an integrated RBFs (IRBFs) based numerical method for the solution of
FPEs. The use of integration to construct RBF approximants helps avoid the reduction in convergence rate caused by differentiation [1]. Numerical experiments showed that IRBF methods can yield accurate solutions on a much coarser mesh, thus reducing the computational effort required for a given degree of accuracy.
