We firstly give some new functions called generalized hyperbolic functions. By the using of the generalized hyperbolic functions, new kinds of transformations are defined to discover the exact approximate solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations. Based on the generalized hyperbolic function transformation of the generalized KdV equation and the coupled equal width wave equations (CEWE), we find new exact solutions of two equations and analyze the properties of them by taking different parameter values of the generalized hyperbolic functions. We think that these solutions are very important to explain some physical phenomena.
To find exact solutions to nonlinear evolution equations, some new techniques have been introduced in recent years such as the Hirota method, the extended Jacobi elliptic function expansion method, the exponential function method, -expansion method, the simplest equation method, the trial equation method, Kudryashov’s method, and solitary ansatz method [1–19]. Also some authors define new functions which are named generalized hyperbolic functions for constructing new solutions [20–22]. There are a lot of nonlinear evolution equations that are integrated using the various mathematical methods. Soliton solutions, compactons, singular solitons, and other solutions have been found by using these approaches. These types of solutions are very important and appear in various areas of applied mathematics.
In Section 2, we give the definition and properties of generalized hyperbolic functions. In Section 3, as applications, we obtain exact solutions of the generalized KdV equation and the coupled equal width wave equations.
2. The Definition and Properties of the Symmetrical Hyperbolic Fibonacci and Lucas Functions
In this section, we will define new functions which are named the symmetrical hyperbolic Fibonacci and Lucas functions for constructing new exact solutions of NPDEs and then study the properties of these functions.
Definition 1. Suppose that is an independent variable; , , and are all constants. The generalized hyperbolic sine function is generalized hyperbolic cosine function is generalized hyperbolic tangent function is generalized hyperbolic cotangent function is generalized hyperbolic secant function is generalized hyperbolic cosecant function is and the above six kinds of functions are said to be generalized new hyperbolic functions. Thus we can prove the following theory of generalized hyperbolic functions on the basis of Definition 1.
Theorem 2. The generalized hyperbolic functions satisfy the following relations: The following just part of them are proved here for simplification.
Theorem 3. The derivative formulae of generalized hyperbolic functions are as follows:
Remark 4. We see that when , , , and in (1)–(6), new generalized hyperbolic functions , , , , , and degenerate as hyperbolic functions , , , , , and , respectively. In addition, when or in (1)–(6), , , , , , and degenerate as exponential function , , , , and , respectively.
Example 5. Application to the generalized form of KdV equation is presented.
The generalized KdV equation that will be studied in this paper are given by  where the first term represents the generalized evolution. The special case with is the regular evolution term. The coefficients of are the nonlinear terms while the coefficients of and are the nonlinear dispersion terms. This equation with has been already studied by , where, in addition to soliton solution, compactons and periodic solutions were also obtained. The hypothesis for solving this equation is where Here, in (11) and (12), represents the amplitude of the soliton while is the inverse width of the soliton and is the velocity of the soliton. The exponent is unknown at this point and will be evaluated during the course of the derivation of the solutions to (10). From (11), it is possible to obtain These results will now be substituted in (10) to obtain the 1-soliton solution of the generalized KdV equation. Equation (10) by virtue of (13) reduces to From (14), equating the exponents and gives that leads to Now from (14), the two linearly independent functions are for . Thus setting their coefficients to zero gives Thus the 1-soliton solution of the generalized KdV equation with generalized evolution is given by This shows that the restriction on the nonlinear exponents of (10) must be
Example 7. Application to the coupled equal width wave equations is presented.
We consider the coupled equal width wave equations  The hypothesis for solving these equations is where Here in (22)–(23) and are the amplitudes of the -soliton and -soliton, respectively, while and are the velocity of the soliton and and are the inverse widths of the solitons. The exponents and are unknown at this point and their values will fall out in the process of deriving the solution of this equation. From (22), it is possible to obtain Substituting these into (21) yields to Now from (28) and (29), equating the exponents and and also and gives, respectively, that leads to So from (28) and (29), the four linearly independent functions are and for . Therefore, setting their respective coefficients to zero we obtain , , and as follow.
4. Conclusions and Remarks
We consider generalized hyperbolic functions and new kinds of generalized hyperbolic function transformation to construct new exact solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations. This paper obtains 1-soliton solution to the generalized KdV equation and the coupled equal width wave equations. Our methods also can be applied to construct new exact solutions of other nonlinear partial differential equations.
