Abstract
Meshless methods are an emerging group of techniques for cutting edge PDE simulation, at problems where conventional Finite Element Method (FEM) falls short. In contraposition with FEM, Meshless evolved quite recently, in the Pythonic Age, long decades after the Spread of Fortran which at its moment gave raise to old good FEM. "NOMS", our framework for meshless simulation is built around two basic pillars: first, scientific computing have to be possible and enjoyable for non hard-core programmers, and second, fun should not sacrifice performance.
