A class of nonlinear Schrödinger-type equations, including the Rangwala-Rao equation, the Gerdjikov-Ivanov equation, the Chen-Lee-Lin equation and the Ablowitz-Ramani-Segur equation are investigated, and the exact solutions are derived with the aid of the homogeneous balance principle, and a set of subsidiary higher order ordinary differential equations (sub-ODEs for short).
