In this paper, we obtain many traveling wave solutions for some nonlinear partial differential equations. The modified tanh-coth method with the symbolic computation is imple- mented for constructing multiple traveling wave solutions for the two dimensional coupled Burger's, ZK-MEW and one dimensional Ostrovsky equations. The results reveal that the implemented technique is very effective and convenient for solving nonlinear partial differential equations arising in mathematical physics.
