The finite point method (FPM) is a gridless numerical procedure based on the combination of weighted least square interpolations on a cloud of points with point collocation for evaluating the approximation integrals. In the paper, details of a procedure for stabilizing the numerical solution for advective-diffusive transport and fluid flow problems using the FPM are given. The method is based on a consistent introduction of the stabilizing terms in the governing differential equations. One example showing the applicability of the FPM is given.
