In this paper, the multi-symplectic Fourier pseudospectral (MSFP) method is generalized to solve two-dimensional Hamiltonian PDEs with periodic boundary conditions. Using the Fourier pseudospectral method in the space of the two-dimensional Hamiltonian PDE (2D-HPDE), the semi-discrete system obtained is proved to have semi-discrete multi-symplectic conservation laws and a global symplecticity conservation law. Then, the implicit midpoint rule is employed for time integration to obtain the MSFP method for the 2D-HPDE. The fully discrete multi-symplectic conservation laws are also obtained. In addition, the proposed method is applied to solve the ZakharovKuznetsov (ZK) equation and the KadomtsevPetviashvili (KP) equation. Numerical experiments on soliton solutions of the ZK equation and the KP equation show the high accuracy and effectiveness of the proposed method. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
