1. Introduction

Nonlinear wave phenomena appear in various scientific and engineering fields such as electrochemistry, electromagnetics, fluid dynamics, acoustics, cosmology, astrophysics and plasma physics. See references [1] -[4] .

In recent time, the numerous approaches have been developed to obtain the solutions of nonlinear equations. For example the -expansion method [5] [6] , the first integral method [7] , the adomian decomposition method [8] , the generalized differential transform method [9] , Jacobi elliptic method [10] , the automated tanhfunction method [11] and the modified simple equation method [12] etc.

Nonlinear wave is one of the fundamental objects of nature and a growing interest has been given to the propagation of nonlinear waves in the dynamical system. The solitary wave ansatz method [13] [14] is rather heuristic and processes significant features that make it practical for the determination of single soliton solutions for a wide class of nonlinear evolution equations. The solitary wave and shock wave solitons have been obtained, using solitary wave ansatz method, for nonlinear Ostrovsky equation and Potential Kadomstev-Petviashvili (PKP) equation, and we clearly see the consistency, which has recently been applied successfully.

The Ostrovsky equation is, a model of ocean currents motion, read as

Parameter determines the type of dispersion, namely, (negativedispersion) for surface and internal waves in the ocean and surface waves in a shallow channel with an uneven bottom; (positive dispersion) for capillary waves on the surface of liquid or for oblique magneto-acoustic waves. Parameter measures the effect of rotation.
