Finding the Exact Solution of Special Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations by Homotopy Analysis Method

Mashallah MATINFAR, Mohammad SAEIDY, Yasir KHAN, Behzad GHARAHSUFLU


In this paper, the homotopy analysis method was used to solve nonlinear parabolic-hyperbolic partial differential equations. Examples are presented here to show the usability of the method for such equations. The results show that the HAM is very effective and convenient and that the obtained solutions of HAM have high accuracy.
