Abstract: We suggest finding exact solutions of equation:

\frac{\partial u}{\partial t}=(\frac{\partial ^{m}}{\partial x^{m}}u)^{p},
t\geq 0, x\in \mathbb{R}, m, p\in \mathbb{N}, p>1,

by a new method that we call the travelling profiles method. This method allows us to find several forms of exact solutions including the classical forms such as travelling-wave and self-similar solutions.
