Within the framework of isogeometric analysis, collocation methods have been recently proposed as an interesting strong form alternative to standard Galerkin approaches, characterized by a significantly reduced computational cost, but still guaranteeing higher order convergence rates. In this chapter we provide a concise introduction to isogeometric collocation methods and propose a brief review of some of the most important results obtained so far in this context.
