In various fields of physical sciences, nonlinear evolution equations (NLEEs) and their exact solutions are important for non-linear phenomena. In this paper, generalized (3 + 1) shallow water-like (SWL) equation [1, 2] which is one of these equations will be discussed and new solutions will be examined.
There are some studies on this equation. Rational solutions and lump solutions are obtained for equation(1) by Zhang et al.  and Grammian and Pfaffian solutions are obtained by Tang et al. . Also, this equation solved by Tian and Gao  via the tanh method, by Zayed  via the (G′/G) expansion method. Lump-type solutions and their interaction solutions are generated by Sadat. In this context, various papers were presented to the literature [6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23]. The organization of this paper is as follows: firstly, we give the methodology of the improved Bernoulli sub-equation function method. Then we apply this method to the SWL equation for finding new exact solutions. At last, we give a conclusion.

Substituting Eq. (5-b6) into Eq. (4), it converts an equations of polynomial σ(F) as following;According to the balance principle, we can determine the relationship between n, m and M.
- Step 3The coefficients of σ(F) all be zero will yield us an algebraic system of equations;Solving this system of equation, we reach the values of a0, …, an and b0, …, bm. Step 4. When we solve nonlinear Bernoulli differential equation Eq. (6), we obtain the following two situations according to α and β;
In this section, application of the improved Bernoulli sub-equation function method to SWL equation is presented. Using the wave transformation on Eq. (1)
we get the following nonlinear ordinary differential equation:
Integrating the equation in (12), we get
Finally, if we write V instead of U′, the equation (13) becomes a second order nonlinear ordinary differential equation:
Balancing Eq. (14) by considering the highest derivative V″ and the highest power V2, we obtain
Choosing M = 2, m = 1, gives n = 3. Thus, the trial solution to Eq. (1) takes the following form:
where F′ = αF + βF2, α, β ≠ 0. Substituting Eq. (15), its second derivative and power along with F′ = αF + βF2, α, β ≠ 0, into Eq. (14), yields a polynomial in F. Solving the system of the algebraic equations, yields the values of the parameter involved. Substituting the obtained values of the parameters into Eq. (15), yields the solutions to Eq. (1). We can find following coefficients:

In this article, new solutions are obtained for the SWL equation using the IBSEFM method. We have seen that the results we obtained are new solutions when we compare them with previous ones. The results may be useful to explain the physical effects of various nonlinear models in non-linear sciences. IBSEFM is a powerful and efficient mathematical tool that can be used to process various nonlinear mathematical models.
