Exact Solitary Wave Solutions of Nonlinear Evolution and Wave Equations using a Direct Algebraic Method
Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and General
The authors present a systematic and formal approach toward finding solitary wave solutions of nonlinear evolution and wave equations from the real exponential solutions of the underlying linear equations. The physical concept is one of the mixing of these elementary solutions through the nonlinearities in the system. The emphasis is, however, on the mathematical aspects, i.e. the formal procedure necessary to find single solitary wave solutions. By means of examples it is shown how various cases of pulse-type and kink-type solutions are to be obtained by this method. An exhaustive list of equations so treated is presented in tabular form, together with the particular intermediate relations necessary for deriving their solutions. The extension of the technique to construct N-soliton solutions and indicate connections with other existing methods is outlined.
