Abstract

Ganji and Abdollahzadeh [D.D. Ganji, M. Abdollahzadeh, Appl. Math. Comput. 206 (2008) 438{444] derived three supposedly new travelling-wave solutions to Lax's seventh-order KdV equation. Each solution was obtained by a di®erent method. It is shown that any two of the solutions may be obtained trivially from the remaining solution. Furthermore it is noted that one of the solutions has been known for many years.
