## Abstract

The aim of this article was to address the lump, lump-one stripe, multiwave and breather solutions for the Hunter–Saxton equation with the aid of Hirota bilinear technique. This model concerns in a massive nematic liquid crystal director field. By choosing the function *f* in Hirota bilinear form, as the general quadratic function, trigonometric function and exponential function along with appropriate set of parameters, we find the lump, lump-one stripe, multiwave and breather solutions successfully. We also interpreted some three-dimensional and contour profiles to anticipate the wave dynamics. These newly obtained solutions have some arbitrary constants and so can be applicable to explain diversity in qualitative features of wave phenomena.

### 1 Introduction

In waves theory, nonlinear partial differential equations(NPDEs), which explain nonlinear aspects, appear in an extensive diversity of scientific and engineering applications, for example, plasma physics, fluid dynamics, hydrodynamics, acoustics, solid-state physics, hydrodynamics and theory of turbulence, optics, optical fibers, chemical physics, chaos theory and many other applications. The study of NPDEs becomes increasingly significant because of their prominent features. A main attachment of scientific work has been perceived in the last few decades on NPDEs such as efficient integration method [1], improved modified Kudryashov method [2], asymptotic method [3], geometric singular perturbation [4], Lie symmetry analysis [5], Painleve expansion procedure [6],

There are many renowned models, such as Vakhnenko dynamical equation [35], nonlinear Schrodinger equation [36], KdV equation [37], Camassa-Holm equation [38], sine-Gordon equation [39] and Biswas-Milovic equation [40], but here we will obtain the exact solutions of the Hunter–Saxton (HS) equation [41],

This equation is used for propagation of orientation waves in a massive nematic liquid crystal director field. The HS equation can be used as a short wave limit of the Camassa–Holm equation:

The content of this article is organized as follows: in Section 2, we evaluate the lump solutions via some three-dimensional (3D) and contour shapes. In Section 3, we find out lump-one stripe interactional solutions and some physical 3D shapes. In Section 4, the brief discussion of multiwave solutions for the proposed model is given. In Section 5, we find breather solutions. In Section 6, there are results and discussion about our newly obtained solutions and comparison with already published work, and in Section 7, we give concluding remarks.

### 2 Lump solution

In the direction to find lump solutions of equation (1), we apply the transformation [42],

which transforms equation (1),

Now the function *f* in equation (5) can be assumed as [36],

where *g*
^{2} = *a*
_{1}
*x* + *a*
_{2}
*t* + *a*
_{3}, *h*
^{2} = *a*
_{4}
*x* + *a*
_{5}
*t* + *a*
_{6}. However, *a*
_{
i
}(1 ≤ *i* ≤ 7) are all real parameters to be measured. Now, substituting *f* into equation (5) and associating the coefficients of *x* and *t* imply us the subsequent result on parameters:

**Set I.**

The parameters in equation (6) prevent the lump solutions to equation (1)

**Set II.**

The parameters in equation (8) imply the lump solutions to equation (1)

### 3 Lump-one stripe soliton interaction solution

To this aim, *f* in the bilinear equation can be assumed as [43],

where *g*
^{2} = *a*
_{1}
*x* + *a*
_{2}
*t* + *a*
_{3}, *h*
^{2} = *a*
_{4}
*x* + *a*
_{5}
*t* + *a*
_{6}, *f*
_{1} = *k*
_{1}
*x* + *k*
_{2}
*t*. However, *a*
_{
i
} (1 ≤ *i* ≤ 7), *k*
_{1} and *k*
_{2} are all real parameters to be found. Now, inserting *f* in equation (3) and relating the coefficients of *x* and *t* give us:

**Set I.**

The parameters in equation (11) create the required solutions to equation (1)

where

**Set II.**

The parameters in equation (13) reveal the required solutions to equation (1)

where

### 4 Multiwave solutions

For finding multiwave solutions, we use the succeeding transformation in equation (1) [44],

With the help of the above transformation, we obtain:

Now with the aid of the following assumption in equation (16)

we get,

To find the multiwave solutions of equation (18), we apply the subsequent hypothesis [40]:

where *a*
_{1}, *a*
_{2}, *a*
_{3}, *a*
_{4}, *a*
_{5} and *a*
_{6} are any constants to be examined. Substituting equation (19) into equation (18) via symbolic computation and collecting the coefficients of all powers of

**Set I.**

By substituting equation (20) into equation (19), we get

As *f* solves equation (18), then *ψ* solves equation (16) via

where

### 5 Breather solutions

For finding the breathers of equation (18), we assume the successive transformation [45]:

where

**Set I.**

As *f* solves equation (18), after that *ψ* solves equation (16) through applying

where

### 6 Results and discussion

In this section, we have made a detailed comparison of our accomplished results with the earlier literature. Many researchers used various methods for calculating solitary wave solutions of the Hunter–Saxton equation. Particularly, Beals et al. applied inverse scattering technique [46], Alberto et al. used distance functional [47], Lenells applied properties of the Riemannian [48], Lenells et al. applied a geometric approach [49], Bressan et al. utilized Lipschitz metric [50], Zhao et al. applied conservation laws [51], Korpinar used symmetry analysis [51] and Zhao applied conservation laws to obtain the exact solutions for the presented model [52]. But here, in this work we have found the lump, lump-one stripe, multiwave and breather solutions for the Hunter–Saxton equation with the aid of Hirota bilinear approach. These types of solutions have been utilized in many fields of science, for example, physics, chemistry, biology, finance, oceanographic engineering, capillary flow and nonlinear optics [42,43, 44,45]. Now we will notice how our obtained results alter their shapes via different values of *a*
_{3} from Figure 1(i), and we can see at *a*
_{3} = 0.2 that *u* has a maximum value at some points, expressing 3D shape of *u* making two bright lump solutions. Similarly, in Figure 1(ii) at *a*
_{3} = 0.8 the same features are observed. But at *a*
_{3} = 2 in Figure 1(iii), we obtain three bright lump solutions. In the same way, for *a*
_{3} = 5 in Figure 2(i) we have achieved seven bright lump solutions and the process was repeated for gradually increasing values of *a*
_{3}, for instance, *a*
_{3} = 8, *a*
_{3} = 15 (Figure 2(ii) and (iii)) respectively. Figures 3 and 4 express the relating contour profiles for Figures 1 and 2, respectively. Now we have observed how our obtained solutions change their wave structure via appropriate choices of *a*
_{3} from Figure 5(i), and we can notice a lump-one stripe soliton at *a*
_{3} = 0.2. Similarly, Figures 5(ii), 5(iii) and 6(i)–(iii) show how a lump-one stripe soliton rises or descends for different values of *a*
_{3}. Figures 7 and 8 present the associating contour graphs for Figures 5 and 6, respectively. Also, Figures 9(i)–(iii) and 10(i)–(iii) show kink wave and their changes in wave shape via *a*
_{3} = −1, *a*
_{3} = 0.2, *a*
_{3} = 0.5, *a*
_{3} = 0.8, *a*
_{3} = 2 and *a*
_{3} = 5, respectively. Similarly, Figures 11(i)–(iii) and 12(i)–(iii) show solitary wave and the changes in their structure through *a*
_{2} = −1, *a*
_{2} = 0.2, *a*
_{2} = 0.5, *a*
_{2} = 0.8, *a*
_{2} = 2 and *a*
_{2} = 5, respectively. Finally, Figures 13 and 14 present the concerning contour graphs for Figures 11 and 12, respectively.

### 7 Concluding remarks

The purpose of this article is to accumulate the lump, lump-one stripe, multi wave and breather solutions for the Hunter–Saxton equation by way of Hirota bilinear scheme and through defining appropriate transformations. We have successfully generated some new exact solutions to the concerning model. The 3D and contour graphs mapped different numeric values, to observe the physical behavior of the system. For better understanding and more effectiveness, we have also explained the geometry of the graphs. The attained solutions show that the proposed method is very reliable, aggressive and simple, and so, the recommended idea could be extended for further nonlinear models in mathematical physics.
