Solving the one-loop soliton solution of the Vakhnenko equation by means of the homotopy analysis method. (English) Zbl 1069.35060
Summary: A powerful, easy-to-use analytic technique for nonlinear problems, namely the homotopy analysis method, is applied to solve the Vakhnenko equation, a nonlinear equation with loop soliton solutions governing the propagation of high-frequency waves in a relaxing medium. By means of a transformation of independent variables, an analysis of one-loop soliton solution expressed by a series of exponential functions is obtained, which agrees well with the known exact solution.
