Exact traveling wave solutions of the Kudryashov-Sinelshchikov equation are studied by the -expansion method and its variants. The solutions obtained include the form of Jacobi elliptic functions, hyperbolic functions, and trigonometric and rational functions. Many new exact traveling wave solutions can easily be derived from the general results under certain conditions. These methods are effective, simple, and many types of solutions can be obtained at the same time.
