1. Introduction

Nonlinear phenomena that appear in many areas of scientific fields such as solid state physics, plasma physics, fluid dynamics, mathematical biology and chemical kinetics can be modeled by partial differential equation. A broad class of analytical solutions methods and numerical solutions methods were used in handle these problems. The investigation of exact traveling wave solution to nonlinear equations plays an important role in the study of nonlinear physical phenomena. Various methods for seeking traveling wave solutions to nonlinear partial differential equations are proposed such as inverse scattering transform method [1], BÄacklund and Darboux transform [2-6], Hirota method [7], Lie group method [8,9] and so on.

In the paper, we shall consider the following generalized Benney-Luke (GBL) equation [10]:

The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we present the auxiliary equation method and its algorithm. In Section 3, we present some exact traveling wave solutions of system (1.1). Finally some conclusion are given.

where is constant. Substitution (2.2) into (2.1) gives rise to a nonlinear ordinary differential equation

(2.3)

Step II. To seek the traveling wave solution of (2.3), we assume that (2.3) has the solution in the form of

(2.4)

with the new variable satisfying:

(2.5)

are constants and is the integer to be determined later.

Step III. Determined the parameter. Substituing Equation (2.4) along with Equation (2.5) into Equation (2.3) and balancing the highest derivative term with the nonlinear terms in the Equation (2.3), we then obtain the value of.

Step IV. Determine the parameters

Substitution Equation (2.4) along with Equation (2.5) into Equation (2.3) and setting the coefficients of all powers to zero, we will obtain a system of nonlinear algebraic equations (NAEs) with respect to the parameters

By solving the NAEs if available, we can determine those parameters explicitly.

3. Exact Traveling Wave Solutions for the Generalized Benney-Luke (GBL) Equation with Any Order

By considering that the traveling wave solutions of (1.1) propagate in the direction of the positive x-axis, i.e. Ref. [10] gave the following traveling equation:

In this paper, we will study the traveling wave solutions of (1.1) with the form:

where c is the wave speed. Substituting it into (1.1) and noting (3.1), we have

(3.2)

Integrating (3.2) once with respect to and taking the integral constant as zero, we obtain
