A generalized KP equation with variable coefficients, including the KP equation and the cylindrical KP equation as its special cases is investigated using a constructive algorithm and symbolic computation. Explicit bi-soliton-like solutions of the equation are obtained under certain constraints on the coefficient functions. For different coefficient functions, the solutions can model different types of bi-soliton-like waves. Some interesting bi-soliton-like waves are graphically revealed. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
