ABSTRACT

In order to get the exact traveling wave solutions to nonlinear partial differential equation, the complete discrimination system for polynomial and direct integral method are applied to the considered equation. All single traveling wave solutions to the equation can be obtained. As an example, we give the solutions to (3 + 1)-dimensional breaking soliton equation.

1. Introduction

For the past decades, to deal with nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), many methods have been developed. These methods have been widely applied to many PDEs to obtain the exact solutions. Recently, a method named the complete discrimination system for polynomial method has been proposed by Liu [1] -[5] . By Liu’s method, we can obtain the classification of single traveling wave solutions to some PDEs. For the PDE being considered, we take the traveling wave transformation and integrate it. The PDE can be directly reduced to ordinary differential equation (ODE) which can be turned into the integral form as follows:

(1)

where is a n-th order polynomial. By Liu’s method, we can obtain the classification of all solutions to the Equation (1).

In this paper, we take into account (3 + 1)-dimensional breaking soliton equation, and it reads as

(2)

where a, b, c, d and e are arbitrary constants.

Equation (2) was originally proposed by Lin [6] to study the Virasoro-type symmetry algebra. Li [7] got some solitary wave solutions and periodic wave solutions of Equation (2) by using a simple transformation relation and solving the ordinary differential equation. Shi [8] gave some exact solutions of Equation (2) by turning it into KdV equation though introducing a simple transformation, and so on.

For Equation (2), we take the traveling wave transformation, and can obtain the corresponding reduced ODE as follow

According to the complete discrimination system, we give the corresponding single traveling wave solutions to Equation (2).

Case 1. has a double real root and a simple real root. Then we have

Case 2. has a triple root. Then we have

where, are integral constants in Equations (18)-(20), (22), (24), (25) and (27).

In Equations (24) (25) and (27), we give the expression of some signals as follow

(28)

(29)

The solutions are all possible exact traveling wave solutions to Equation (2). We can see it is easy to write the corresponding solutions to (3 + 1)-dimensional breaking soliton equation.

3. Conclusion

From the descriptions above, we use the complete discrimination system for polynomial and direct integral method to obtain all possible traveling wave solutions to (3 + 1)-dimensional breaking soliton equation. This method is direct and effective. With the same method, some of other equations can be dealt with.
