Document Type: Research Articles


دانشگاه محقق اردبیلی


In this article, we apply the Multiquadric radial basis function (RBF) interpo-
lation method for nding the numerical approximation of traveling wave solu-
tions of the Kawahara equation. The scheme is based on the Crank-Nicolson
formulation for space derivative. The performance of the method is shown in
numerical examples.
