A computational method for regularized long wave equation. (English) Zbl 0965.65108

Summary: Quintic spline technique and splitting method have been used to develop a new-finite difference method to solve regularized long wave equation. The convergence and the stability of the proposed method are discussed. Then, it is used to model solitary wave motion and undular bore development by solving two test examples.
