      The dynamics of localised solitary wave solutions play an essential role in the fields of mathematical sciences such as optical physics, plasma physics, nonlinear dynamics and many others. The prime objective of this study is to obtain localised solitary wave solutions and exact closed-form solutions of the (2 + 1)-dimensionaluniversal hierarchy equation (UHE) using the Lie symmetry approach. Besides, the Lie infinitesimals, all the vector fields, commutation relations of Lie algebra and symmetry reductions are derived via the Lie transformation method. Meanwhile, the universal hierarchy equation is reduced into nonlinear ODEs through two stages of symmetry reductions. The closed-form invariant solutions are attained under some parametric conditions imposed on infinitesimal generators. Because of the presence of arbitrary independent functional parameters and other constants, these group-invariant solutions are explicitly displayed in terms of arbitrary functions that are more relevant, beneficial and useful for explaining nonlinear complex physical phenomena. Furthermore, the dynamical structures of the obtained exact solutions are illustrated for suitable values of arbitrary constants through 3D-plots based on numerical simulation. Some of these localised solitary waves are double solitons, periodic lump solitons,dark solitons, five-solitons, hemispherical solitons and lump-type solitons.

    • New optical soliton solutions of Biswas–Arshed equation using the generalised exponential rational function approach and Kudryashov’s simplest equation approach


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      This paper studies the optical soliton solutions of the Biswas–Arshed equation with the help of two different techniques, such as the generalised exponential rational function (GERF) technique and Kudryashov’s simplest equation technique. TheGERFtechnique extracts distinct families of exact solitarywave solutions involving trigonometric function solutions, hyperbolic function solutions, rational function solutions, etc. After that, we apply Kudryashov’s simplest equation method in the context of Bernoulli and Riccati equations to attain different kindsof families of exact soliton solutions. All the acquired solutions of the equation have numerous applications in many branches of nonlinear sciences such as plasma physics, superconductivity, nonlinear optics, biophysics, starformation, quantum mechanics, etc. and many more connected fields of nonlinear wave sciences. The exact solitary wave solutions obtained by GERF technique and Kudryashov’s simplest equation technique are inmore generalisedform as they contained several arbitrary parameters. Subsequently, to understand the behaviour of deduced solutions, we graphically discuss the real part, imaginary part and modulus of these solutions by suitable choice of involved arbitrary parameters.
