  • Abstract

    The analytical solutions of the Thomas equation are investigated. The wave transformation is exploited to simplify the Thomas equation from a form of partial differential equation (PDE) to an ordinary differential equation (ODE). Both of the generalised tanh and the travelling wave hypothesis methods are applied to obtain exact solutions for the Thomas equation.
