The ($G'/G$)-expansion method and its simpliﬁed version are used to obtain generalized travelling wave solutions of ﬁve nonlinear evolution equations (NLEEs) of physical importance, viz. the ($2+1$)-dimensional Maccari system, the Pochhammer–Chree equation, the Newell–Whitehead equation, the Fitzhugh–Nagumo equation and the Burger–Fisher equation. A variety of special solutions like periodic, kink–antikink solitons, bell-type solitons etc. can easily be derived from the general results. Three-dimensional proﬁle plots of some of the solutions are also drawn.

In this paper, we obtain exact soliton solutions of the modified KdV equation, inho-mogeneous nonlinear Schrödinger equation and $G(m, n)$ equation with variable coefficients using solitary wave ansatz. The constraint conditions among the time-dependent coefficients turn out as necessary conditions for the solitons to exist. Numerical simulations for dark and bright soliton solutions for the mKdV equation are also given.

We explore the dynamics of quadratic and quartic nonlinear diffusion–reaction equations with nonlinear convective flux term, which arise in well-known physical and biological problems such as population dynamicsof the species. Three integration techniques, namely the $(G'/G)$-expansion method, its generalised version and Kudryashov method, are adopted to solve these equations. We attain new travelling and solitary wave solutions inthe form of Jacobi elliptic functions, hyperbolic functions, trigonometric functions and rational solutions with some constraint relations that naturally appear from the structure of these solutions. The travelling population fronts,which are the general solutions of nonlinear diffusion–reaction equations, describe the species invasion if higher population density corresponds to the species invasion. This effort highlights the significant features of the employed algebraic approaches and shows the diversity in the constructed solutions.

The paper aims to construct optical solitons and travelling wave solutions to two birefringent nonlinear models which consist of two-component form of vector solitons in optical fibre: the Biswas–Arshed model with Kerr-type nonlinearity and without four-wave mixing terms and the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with quadratic cubic law of refractive index along with four-wavemixing terms. These nonlinear Schrödinger equations are applied in many physical and engineering fields. Optical solitons are considered in the context of photonic crystal fibres,couplers, polarisation-preserving fibres, metamaterials, birefringent fibres, and so on. Two reliable integration architectures, namely, the extended simplest equation method and the generalised sub-ODE approach, are adopted. As a result, bright soliton, kink and dark soliton, singular soliton, hyperbolic wave, a periodic wave, elliptic function solutions ofWeierstrass and Jacobian types, and other travelling wave solutions, such as breather solutions and optical rogons, are derived, together with the existence conditions. In addition, the amplitude and intensity diagrams are portrayed by taking appropriate values for a few selected solutions. Furthermore, based on linear stability analysis, the modulation instability was explored for the obtained steady-state solutions. The reported results of this papercan enrich the dynamical behaviours of the two considered nonlinear models and can be useful in many scientific fields, such as mathematical physics, mathematical biology, telecommunications, engineering and optical fibres.This study confirms that the proposed approaches are sufficiently effective in extracting a variety of analytical solutions to other nonlinear models in both engineering and science.
