Wronskian and Grammian Solutions for Generalized (n + 1)-Dimensional KP Equation with Variable Coefficients


The generalized (n + 1)-dimensional KP equation with variable coefficients is investigated in this paper. The bilinear form of the equation has been obtained by the Hirota direct method. In addition, with the help of Wronskian technique and the Pfaffian properties, Wronskian and Grammian solutions have been generated.
