Similar schemes have been implemented in an SPH context for the simulation of incompressible flows (Cummins & Rudman 1999).

Pro jection schemes for incompressible flow in SPH have been implemented by Cummins & Rudman (1999), the results of which are applicable to the present case.
Smoothed Particle Magnetohydrodynamics III. Multidimensional tests and the div B = 0 constraint
Cummins & Rudman (1999) approach this problem by calculating the ∇2 using SPH operators, solving the Poisson equation by matrix inversion.

In this scheme Cummins & Rudman (1999) used the SPH evaluation of the Laplacian similar to that which is commonly used for thermal conduction in SPH (Brookshaw 1985; Cleary & Monaghan 1999) (and which is similar to the artificial thermal conductivity term used in this paper).
