**New Periodic Solitary Wave Solutions for a Variable-Coefficient Gardner Equation from Fluid Dynamics and Plasma Physics** ()

The Gardner equation with a variable-coefficient from fluid dynamics and plasma physics is investigated. Different kinds of solutions including breather-type soliton and two soliton solutions are obtained using bilinear method and extended homoclinic test approach. The proposed method can also be applied to solve other types of higher dimensional integrable and non-integrable systems.
