Application of the variational iteration method to the Whitham-Broer-Kaup equations. (English) Zbl 1138.76024
Summary: Using the variational iteration method, we obtain explicit traveling wave solutions of Whitham-Broer-Kaup equations including blow-up and periodic solutions. Moreover, the results are compared with those obtained by Adomian decomposition method, revealing that the variational iteration method is superior to Adomian decomposition method.
