In this article, a new application of sub-equation and generalized Kudryashov methods has been used for solution of nonlinear (2+1)-dimensional time fractional Zoomeron equation with modified Riemann-Liouville derivative. For this, the fractional complex transformation has been used to convert fractional differential equation to ordinary differential equation of integer order. As a result, two types of exact analytical solutions have been obtained. (C) 2016 Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.
