Solving the nonlinear periodic wave problems with the homotopy analysis method. (English) Zbl 1189.35293

Summary: An analytic technique, namely the Homotopy Analysis Method (HAM), is applied to solve the nonlinear mKdV equation. Solutions for periodic waves are given and compared with the exact ones, which shows the validity of the HAM for the nonlinear periodic wave problems.
