We proposed ways to implement meshless collocation methods extrinsically for solving elliptic PDEs on smooth, closed, connected, and complete Riemannian manifolds with arbitrary codimensions. Our methods are based on strong-form collocations with oversampling and least-squares minimizations, which can be implemented either analytically or approximately. By restricting global kernels to the manifold, our methods resemble their easy-to-implement domain-type analogies, i.e., Kansa methods. Our main theoretical contribution is the robust convergence analysis under some standard smoothness assumptions for high-order convergence. Numerical demonstrations are provided to verify the proven convergence rates, and we simulate reaction-diffusion equations for generating Turing patterns on manifolds.
