Numerical Solutions of the Regularized Long-Wave (RLW) Equation Using New Modification of Laplace-Decomposition Method


In this paper the new modification of Laplace Adomian decomposition method (ADM) to obtain numerical solution of the regularized long-wave (RLW) equation is presented. The performance of the method is illustrated by solving two test examples of the problem. To see the accuracy of the method, L2 and L error norms are calculated.
