      An analytic study of the nonlinear Kolmogorov-Petrovskii-Piskunov (KPP) equation is presented in this paper. The Riccati equation method combined with the generalized extended $(G'/G)$-expansion method is an interesting approach to find more general exact solutions of the nonlinear evolution equations in mathematical physics. We obtain the traveling wave solutions involving parameters, which are expressed by the hyperbolic and trigonometric function solutions. When the parameters are taken as special values, the solitary and periodic wave solutions are given. Comparison of our new results in this paper with the well-known results are given.
