Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 185)


In this paper, by means of symbolic computation, the new solutions of original auxiliary equation of first-order nonlinear ordinary differential equation with sixth-degree nonlinear term are presented to obtain novel exact solutions of the modified equal width equation. By the aid of the solutions of the original auxiliary equation; some other physically important nonlinear equations can be solved to construct novel exact solutions.
