In the numerical method there is no mesh. We work with points distributed in the geometry. My question is this: "How to apply the Neumann boundary condition?" Thank you a lot, Kemelli

Strong 1 You already have a formula for the derivatives. Plug them into the Neumann condition and solve for the boundary value. Strong 2 If you are using least squares for approximating derivatives, use a Lagrange multiplier to include the Neumann condition. Weak If you are using least squares, square the Neumann condition and add it to the quantity you are minimizing.
