Modified simple equation method for nonlinear evolution equations. (English) Zbl 1201.65119

Summary: This paper reflects the implementation of a reliable technique which is called modified simple equation method (MSEM) for solving evolution equations. The proposed algorithm has been successfully tested on two very important evolution equations namely Fitzhugh-Nagumo equation and Sharma-Tasso-Olver equation. Numerical results are very encouraging.
