Nonlinear phenomena play a crucial role in applied mathematics and physics. Explicit solutions to the nonlinear equations are of fundamental importance. Various methods for obtaining explicit solution to nonlinear evolution equations have been proposed. In this letter homotopy perturbation method (HPM) is employed for solving one-dimensional non-homogeneous parabolic partial differential equation with a variable coefficient and a system of nonlinear partial differential equations. The final results obtained by means of HPM, were compared with those results obtained from the exact solution and the Adomian Decomposition Method (ADM). The comparison shows a precise agreement between the results, and introduces this new method as an applicable one which it needs less computations and is much easier and more convenient than others, so it can be widely used in engineering too.
