Abstract

Explicit solutions of a model equation describing the motion of melts in the Earth are obtained by an independent variable transformation. Included are periodic wave solutions, solitary wave solutions and weak solutions with compact support. It is also discussed that if the model equation is modified, the resultant equation can be reduced to the exactly solvable Korteweg-de Vries equation.
