1. Introduction

In mathematics and physics, the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (KP) equation is a partial differential equation to describe nonlinear wave motion. It can be used to model water waves of long wavelength with weakly nonlinear restoring forces and frequency dispersion [1]. A number of modified forms of the KP equation have been studied [2-6]. In [1,7], the generalized Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation without dissipation terms was given by

(1)

where are constants, ,. Some of modified form of the KP equation can be written in the form of Equation (1).

Many reliable methods are used in the literature to examine the completely integrable nonlinear evolution equations. The Hirota bilinear method, the Bäcklund transformation method, the inverse scattering method, the Painlevé analysis, the simplified Hirotas method established by Hereman et al. [8], and others were effectively used in [1-13]. Liu proposed a complete discrimination system for polynomial method [10-13]. That is, by using of elementary integral method and complete discrimination system for polynomial, the single wave solutions can be classified for some nonlinear differential equations which can be directly reduced to integral forms.

In this paper, we consider the following generalized Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation without dissipation terms in:
