Abstract:  
In this paper a numerical simulation based on radial basis functions is presented for the timedependent Allenï¿½??Cahn equation on surfaces with no boundary. In order to approximate the temporal variable, a firstorder time splitting technique is applied. The error analysis is given when the true solution lies on appropriate Sobolev spaces defined on surfaces. The method only requires a set of scattered points on a given surface and an approximation to the surface normal vectors at these points. Besides, the approach is based on Cartesian coordinates and thus any coordinate singularity has been omitted. Some numerical results are given to illustrate the ability of the technique on sphere, torus and red blood cell as three wellknown surfaces.
