In this paper, the method based on the collocation method with quintic B-spline finite elements is set up to simulate the solitary wave solution of the complex modified Korteweg-de Vries (CMKdV) equation. The Crank-Nicolson central differencing scheme has been used for the time integration and quintic B-spline functions have been used for the space integration. Propagation of the solitary wave and the interaction of two solitary waves are studied.
