We will prove scattering for the fifth-order Kadomtsev-Petviashvilli II (fifth-order KP-II) equation. The fifth-order KP-II equation is an example of a nonlinear dispersive equation which takes the form $u_t=Lu + NL(u)$ where $L$ is a linear differential operator and $NL$ is a nonlinear operator. One looks for solutions $u(t)$ in a space $C(\R,X)$ where $X$ is a Banach space. For a nonlinear dispersive differential equation, the associated linear problem is $v_t=Lv$. A solution $u(t)$ of the nonlinear equation is said to scatter if as $t \to \infty$, the solution $u(t)$ approaches a solution $v(t)$ to the linear problem in the Banach space $X$. Our work is based on the analysis of the third-order KP-II equation by Hadac, Herr, and Koch.
