Nature of problem:
The program gives out exact solitary wave solutions, which can describe various phenomena in nature, and thus can give more insight into the physical aspects of problems and may be easily used in further applications.

The program can handle coupled nonlinear evolution equations in which every equation is a polynomial (or can be converted to a polynomial) in the unknown functions and their derivatives.

Running time:
It depends on the input equations as well as the degrees of the desired polynomial solutions. For most of the coupled equations which we have computed, the running time is no more than 20 seconds.
