Recently some differential quadrature (DQ) based discrete numerical methods, which are original works and have perspectives, were proposed by the author. These methods are generic differential quadrature (GDQ), extended differential quadrature (EDQ), differential quadrature finite element method (DQFEM), differential quadrature finite difference method (DQFDM), differential quadrature element method (DQEM), generalized differential quadrature element method (GDQEM) and generalized coordinate differential quadrature element method (GCDQEM). They are all based on a strong formulation. These methods have excellent numerical efficiency and reliability. Moreover, they have the advantage of consistently discretizing continuum problems having arbitrarily complex geometries.
