Traveling Wave Solutions and Kind Wave Excitations for the (2 + 1)-Dimensional Dissipative Zabolotskaya-Khokhlov Equation

Abstract

In this work, with the help of the symbolic computation system Maple and the Riccati mapping approach and a linear variable separation approach, a new family of traveling wave solutions of the (2 + 1)-dimensional dissipative Zabolotskaya-Khokhlov equation (DZK) is derived. Based on the derived solitary wave solution, some novel kind wave excitations are investigated.
