In this work, new travelling wave solutions to the Ostrovsky equation are studied by employing the improved tanh function method. With this method, the Ostrovsky equation is reduced to the nonlinear ordinary differential equation and then the different types of exact solutions are derived based on the solutions of the Riccati equation. We will compare our solutions with those gained by the other methods. (C) 2010 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
