Similarity Reduction of Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations


In this work, the HB method is extended to search for similarity reduction of nonlinear partial differential equations. This method is generalized and will apply for a (2 + 1)-dimensional higher order Broer-Kaup System. Some new exact solutions of Broer-Kaup System are found.
