This paper studies the Davey-Stewartson equation. The traveling wave solution of this equation is obtained for the case of power-law nonlinearity. Subsequently, this equation is solved by the exponential function method. The mapping method is then used to retrieve more solutions to the equation. Finally, the equation is studied with the aid of the variational iteration method. The numerical simulations are also given to complete the analysis.
