Modified Adomain Decomposition Method for the Generalized Fifth Order KdV Equations


New modified Adomian decomposition method is proposed for the solution of the generalized fifth-order Korteweg-de Vries (GFKdV) equation. The numerical solutions are compared with the standard Adomian decomposition method and the exact solutions. The results are demonstrated which confirm the efficiency and applicability of the method.
