The numerical representations discretise the equation set such that relationships exist between nodes. The collection of the nodes forms the mesh/grid. And so if we are to have any chance of solving the equation set we 'need' to know the location in space, and time also if the problem is a time dependant one, of the nodes.

They are called Meshless methods. Meshless methods begin to emerge around a decade ago, since a whole lot of time is consumed in meshing. Galerkin Method is one of the meshless methods. However, it is hardly directly used. However, it seems you are new to the field, so for the time being its better to know that meshing is a necessity and not important. Vinod Dhiman
