The first thing you would do, of course, is separate into "u> 0", "u< 0" cases. After that it is pretty much standard.

My question

First, thank you .but if the solution of the equation (U) is a complex number, how to separate the "u" into the two condition:(1) U>0; (2) U<0.

If u is a complex valued function, then separate it into real and imaginary parts: u(x)= p(x)+ i q(x). |u|2= p2+ q2 and you have two non-linear differential equations for p and q. They will still be rather nasty I am afraid. MOST non-linear equations can be solved in closed form.
