In the theoretical part of this paper, we introduce a simplified proof technique for error bounds and convergence of a variation of Kansa's well-known unsymmetric meshless collocation method. For a numerical implementation of the convergent variation, a previously proposed greedy technique is coupled with linear optimization. This algorithm allows a fully adaptive on-the-fly data-dependent meshless selection of test and trial spaces. The new method satisfies the assumptions of the background theory, and numerical experiments demonstrate its stability.
