**Authors:**
Anupma Bansal,
R. K. Gupta

**Abstract:**

In this paper, we study a new modified Novikov equation for its classical and nonclassical symmetries and use the symmetries to reduce it to a nonlinear ordinary differential equation (ODE). With the aid of solutions of the nonlinear ODE by using the modified (G/G)-expansion method proposed recently, multiple exact traveling wave solutions are obtained and the traveling wave solutions are expressed by the hyperbolic functions, trigonometric functions and rational functions.

**Keywords:**
New Modified Novikov Equation,
Lie Classical Method,
Nonclassical Method,
Modified (G'/G)-Expansion Method,
Traveling Wave Solutions.
