In this paper, an approximate function for the Galerkin method is composed using the combination of the exponential B-spline functions. Regularized long wave equation (RLW) is integrated fully by using an exponential B-spline Galerkin method in space together with Crank-Nicolson method in time. Three numerical examples related to propagation of single solitary wave, interaction of two solitary waves and wave generation are employed to illustrate the accuracy and the efficiency of the method. Obtained results are compared with some early studies.
