Kadomtsev-Petviashvili Equation

The partial differential equation




(Krichever and Novikov 1980; Novikov 1999). Zwillinger (1997, p. 131) and Calogero and Degasperis (1982, p. 54) give the equation as


The modified Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation is given by


(Clarkson 1986; Zwillinger 1997, p. 133).
