The tanh method for traveling wave solutions of nonlinear equations. (English) Zbl 1054.65106
Summary: We employ the tanh method for traveling wave solutions of nonlinear equations. The study is extended to equations that do not have tanh polynomial solutions. The efficiency of the method is demonstrated by applying it for a variety of selected equations.
