New Explicit Solutions of the Generalized (2 + 1)-Dimensional Zakharov-Kuznetsov Equation


his paper studies the generalized (2 + 1)-dimensional Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation using the (G'/G)-expand method, we obtain many new explicit solutions of the generalized (2 + 1)-dimensional Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation, which include hyperbolic function solutions, trigonometric function solutions and rational function solutions and so on.
