Some solutions of the linear and nonlinear Klein-Gordon equations using the optimal homotopy asymptotic method. (English) Zbl 1193.35190

Summary: We investigate the effectiveness of the Optimal Homotopy Asymptotic Method (OHAM) in solving time dependent partial differential equations. For this, we consider the homogeneous, non-homogeneous, linear and nonlinear Klein-Gordon equations with boundary conditions. The results reveal that the method is explicit, effective, and easy to use.
