Exact Solutions for a New Nonlinear KdV-Like Wave Equation Using Simplest Equation Method and Its Variants
The simplest equation method presents wide applicability to the handling of nonlinear wave equations. In this paper, we focus on the exact solution of a new nonlinear KdV-like wave equation by means of the simplest equation method, the modified simplest equation method and, the extended simplest equation method. The KdV-like wave equation was derived for solitary waves propagating on an interface (liquid-air) with wave motion induced by a harmonic forcing which is more appropriate for the study of thin film mass transfer. Thus finding the exact solutions of this equation is of great importance and interest. By these three methods, many new exact solutions of this equation are obtained.
