Korteweg de-Vries (K-dV) has wide applications in physics, engineering and fluid mechanics. In this the Korteweg de-Vries equation with traveling solitary waves and numerical estimation of analytic solutions have been studied. We have found some exact traveling wave solutions with relevant physical parameters using new auxiliary equation method introduced by PANG, BIAN and CHAO. We have solved the set of exact traveling wave solution analytically. Some numerical results of time dependent wave solutions have been presented graphically and discussed. This procedure has a potential to be used in more complex system of many types of K-dV equation.
All solutions of the Korteweg-de Vries(K-dV) equation that are bounded on the real line are physically relevant, depending on the application area of interest. Usually, both analytical and numerical approaches consider solution profiles that are either spatially localized or (quasi) periodic. The development of numerical techniques for obtaining approximate solution of partial differential equations has very much increased in the finite element and finite difference methods. Recently, new auxiliary equation method introduced by PANG, BIAN and CHAO is applied to the analytical solution of K-dV equation and wavelet methods are applied to the numerical solution of partial differential equations. Pioneer works in this direction are those of Beylkin, Dahmen, Jaffard and Glowinski, among others. In this research we employ the new auxiliary equation method to obtain the effect of dispersion term on travelling wave solution of K-dV and their numerical estimation as well. Our approach views the limit behavior as an invariant measure of the fast motion drifted by the slow component, where the known constants of motion of the fast system are employed as slowly evolv- ing observables; averaging equations for the latter lead to computation of the characteristic features of the motion.
The effect of external magnetic field and internal heat generation or absorption on a steady two-dimensional natural convection flow of viscous incompressible fluid along a uniformly heated vertical wavy surface has been investigated. The governing boundary layer equations are first transformed into a non-dimensional form using suitable set of dimensionless variables. The transformed boundary layer equations are solved numerically using the implicit finite difference method, known as Keller-box scheme. Numerical results for velocity, temperature, skin friction, the rate of heat transfer are obtained for different values of the selected parameters, such as viscous dissipation parameter (Vd), heat generation parameter (Q), magnetic parameter (M) and presented graphically and discussed. Streamlines and isotherms are presented for selected values of heat generation parameter and explained.
