a b s t r a c tWe observe that the form of the Kadomstev-Petviashvili equation studied by Yu (2011) [S. Yu, N-soliton solutions of the KP equation by Exp-function method, Appl. Math. Comput. (2011) doi:10.1016/j.amc.2010.095] is incorrect. We claim that the N-soliton solutions obtained by means of the basic Exp-function method and some of its known generalizations do not satisfy the equation considered. We emphasize that Yu's results (except only one) cannot be solutions of the correct form of the Kadomstev-…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
