Similarity Reduction of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations
Abstract: In this work, the HB method is extended to search for similarity reduction of nonlinear partial differential equations. This method is generalized and will apply for a (2 + 1)-dimensional higher order Broer-Kaup System. Some new exact solutions of Broer-Kaup System are found.
