Using the heat equation as a simple example, we give a rigorous theoretical analysis of the Method of Lines, implemented as a meshless method based on spatial trial spaces spanned by translates of positive definite kernels. The technique can be generalized to other parabolic problems, and some numerical illustrations are given.
