Application of the homotopy analysis method to solving nonlinear evolution equations. (Chinese. English summary) Zbl 1202.65130
Summary: We obtain a class of approximate periodic solutions for the $$(2+1)$$-dimensional modified Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation by using the homotopy analysis method (HAM). The solutions we obtained agree with the exact solutions. The results indicate that the HAM is still valid for solving a class of higher dimensional evolution equations. We also made some efforts to extend the HAM to find the analytic solutions for more nonlinear evolution equations in an easier way.
