Exact travelling wave solutions in terms of the Jacobi elliptic functions are obtained to the (3+1)-dimensional Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation by means of the extended mapping method. Limit cases are studied, and new solitary wave solutions and trigonometric periodic wave solutions are got. The method is applicable to a large variety of nonlinear partial differential equations.
