Summary: With the aid of the symbolic computation, we present a new method to find explicit exact solutions to nonlinear differential-difference equation. We successfully solve a lattice equation introduced by Wadati [Prog Theor Phys 1976;59 (Suppl.):36-63], and obtain some new soliton solutions.
Editorial remark: There are doubts about a proper peer-reviewing procedure of this journal. The editor-in-chief has retired, but, according to a statement of the publisher, articles accepted under his guidance are published without additional control.
