LearnHowToBecome.org, a leading resource provider for higher education and career information, has released its list of the Best Colleges in Illinois for 2017. 50 four-year colleges were ranked, with Northwestern University, University of Chicago, Bradley University, Illinois Institute of Technology and Augustana College taking the top five spots on the list. 49 two-year schools were also selected; Carl Sandburg College, Illinois Central College, Richland Community College, Rend Lake College and Lincoln Land Community College were the top five. A complete list of schools is included below. “The schools on our list have shown that they offer outstanding educational programs that set students up for post-college success,” said Wes Ricketts, senior vice president of LearnHowToBecome.org. “Students exploring higher education options in Illinois can also look to these schools to provide top-quality resources that help maximize the overall educational experience.” To be included on the “Best Colleges in Illinois” list, all schools must be not-for-profit and regionally accredited. Each college is also evaluated metrics including annual alumni earnings, the opportunity for employment services and academic counseling, the selection of degree programs offered, financial aid availability and graduation rates.

Physica Scripta | Year: 2011

A new generalized fifth-order nonlinear integrable equation is examined. The Hereman-Nuseir method is used to derive the conditions for the cases of complete integrability of this equation. Multiple soliton solutions are formally derived cases of integrability. The resonance phenomenon of each integrable equation is investigated. © 2011 The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.


In this work, we study a (2. +. 1)-dimensional and a (3. +. 1)-dimensional B-type Kadomtsev-Petviashvili (BKP) equations. The simplified form of the Hirota method is used to establish multiple soliton solutions for each equation. The coefficients of the spatial variables remain free and not subject to any constraint condition. We also determine soliton solutions, rational solutions and periodic solutions. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Romanian Reports in Physics | Year: 2013

In this work, we present construction of the integrable couplings of the Burgers equation (BE) and the Sharma-Tasso-Olver (TSO) equation. We use the algebra of coupled scalars to develop the two classes of couplings. The B̈acklund transformation and the simplified Hirota's method will be used to study the developed couplings. We show that these couplings possess multiple kink solutions the same as the multiple kink solutions of the BE and the STO equations, but differ only in the coefficients of the B̈acklund transformation. This difference exhibits kink solutions for some equations and anti-kink solutions for others.


In this paper, we establish the Volterra integro-differential forms of the singular Flierl-Petviashvili equation and the singular Lane-Emden equation. We use the variational iteration method (VIM) to effectively handle any singular equation of the form identical to these equations. The Volterra integro-differential forms of the singular equations overcome the singular behaviour at the origin x = 0, do not use a variety of Lagrange multipliers, and facilitate the computational work. The Padé approximant will be used for the Flierl-Petviashvili equation that is valid in an infinite domain.

Proceedings of the Romanian Academy Series A - Mathematics Physics Technical Sciences Information Science | Year: 2013

In this work, we use the algebra of coupled scalars to develop two kinds of nonlinear integrable couplings of the modified Korteweg-de Vries (mKdV) equation. One of the integrable couplings of the mKdV equation gives multiple soliton solutions of distinct amplitudes, whereas the second kind gives multiple singular soliton solutions of distinct amplitudes as well. The Bäcklund transformation and the simplified Hirota's method will be used for this study. We show that these couplings possess multiple soliton solutions the same as the multiple soliton solutions of the mKdV equation, but differ only in the coefficients of the Bäcklund transformation. This difference exhibits soliton solutions with distinct amplitudes.

In this work we study a variety of Boussinesq-like equations. One soliton solution and another singular soliton solution are obtained for each equation. We employ independently two distinct approaches to formally derive standard and singular solitons. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Proceedings of the Romanian Academy Series A - Mathematics Physics Technical Sciences Information Science | Year: 2014

In this work we study the (2+1)-dimensional integrable Gardner equation. The simplified form of Hirota's direct method is used to derive multiple kink solutions and multiple singular kink solutions for this equation. © 2014, The Publishing House of the Romanian Academy. All rights reserved.

Mathematical Methods in the Applied Sciences | Year: 2013

In this work, a variety of distinct kinds of multiple soliton solutions is derived for a (3 + 1)-dimensional nonlinear evolution equation. The simplified form of the Hirota's method is used to derive this set of distinct kinds of multiple soliton solutions. The coefficients of the spatial variables play a major role in the existence of this variety of multiple soliton solutions for the same equation. The resonance phenomenon is investigated as well.

Mathematical Methods in the Applied Sciences | Year: 2012

In this paper, we present a reliable study on extensions of the Bratu problem with boundary conditions. The work rests mainly on Adomian decomposition method and Padé approximants. The study shows a variety of approximations, one for each extension. The work highlights the effect of the extensions on the structure of the approximate solutions.
