Recently, particular solutions using radial basis functions have been used as a basis for solving inhomogeneous partial differential equations as a one-stage approach without the need of finding homogeneous solutions. In this paper, we adopt a newly developed adaptive greedy algorithm to enhance the performance of the one-stage method and alleviate the difficulty of ill-conditioning of the resultant matrix. To demonstrate the effectiveness of coupling these two methods, we give two 3D examples with excellent numerical results.
