Abstract. In this work, arecently developed semi-analytic technique, so called the residualpower series method, is generalized to process higher-dimensional linear andnonlinear partial differential equations. The obtained solution takes a form ofan infinite power series which can, in turn, be expressed in a closed exactform. The results reveal that the proposed generalization is very effective,convenient and simple.

This isachieved by handling the -dimensional Burgers equation.Key words. -dimensional nonlinear partial differential equations;Generalized residual power series method; Convergence analysis; Exact solution;Burgers equation.1.
