Abstract In this work we show the application of the Method of Fundamental Solutions (MFS) in the determination of eigenfrequencies and eigenmodes associated to wave scattering pro\discretionary {-}{}{}blems. This meshless method was already applied to simple geometry domains with Dirichlet boundary conditions (cf. \relax \begingroup \catcode `\ 12\relax \catcode `\\12\relax \catcode `\$12\relax \catcode `\&12\relax \catcode `\#12\relax \catcode `\^12\relax \catcode `\_12\relax \catcode `\%12\relax \catcode `\~12\relax \endgroup \relax \cite *{Karag}) and to multiply connected domains (cf. \relax \begingroup \catcode `\ 12\relax \catcode `\\12\relax \catcode `\$12\relax \catcode `\&12\relax \catcode `\#12\relax \catcode `\^12\relax \catcode `\_12\relax \catcode `\%12\relax \catcode `\~12\relax \endgroup \relax \cite *{JTChenMFS}). Here we show that a particular choice of point-sources can lead to very good results for a fairly gene\discretionary {-}{}{}ral type of domains. Simulations with Neumann boundary condition are also considered.
