A positive meshless method is constructed using least squares approximation for derivatives, upwinding and artificial dissipation. Godunov-type ideas and limiting procedures from finite-volume methods can be used in the present scheme. The method is applied to inviscid Euler equations in 2-D, and discontinuous flows are computed which show good oscillation-free solutions. Also, two new approaches to deriving a meshless finite difference formula are proposed which will avoid the need for using artificial dissipation terms.
