In this paper, we develop the meshless local Petrov-Galerkin formulation of the scattering from rectangular cavities embedded in a ground plane. The electromagnetic scattering by the cavity is governed by the Helmholtz equation along with Sommerfeld's radiation conditions imposed at infinity. The MLPG method is a truly meshless method wherein no elements or background cells are needed, in either the interpolation or integration. Based on local weak form and the moving least square (MLS) approximation, this truly meshless method is applied to solve the scattering problem. The results of numerical experiments have shown the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed method.
