The differential transform method (DTM) is based on the Taylor series for all variables, but it differs from the traditional Taylor series in calculating coefficients. Even if the DTM is an effective numerical method for solving many nonlinear partial differential equations, there are also some difficulties due to the complex nonlinearity. To overcome difficulties arising in DTM, we present the new modified version of DTM, namely, the projected differential transform method (PDTM), for solving nonlinear partial differential equations.
