Exact Traveling Wave Solutions of Nonlinear PDEs in Mathematical Physics
Author(s) Jameel F. Alzaidy*
ABSTRACT
In the present article, we construct the exact traveling wave solutions of nonlinear PDEs in mathematical physics via the variant Boussinesq equations and the coupled KdV equations by using the extended mapping method and auxiliary equation method. This method is more powerful and will be used in further works to establish more entirely new solutions for other kinds of nonlinear partial differential equations arising in mathematical physics.
