**The use of He’s variational iteration method for solving the telegraph and fractional telegraph equations.**
*(English)*
Zbl 1210.65173

Summary: The variational iteration method is used to compute the solution for the linear, variable coefficient, fractional derivative and multi space telegraph equations. The method constructs a convergent sequence of functions, to approximate the exact solution with a few number of iterations without discretization. Numerical results and comparison with exact solutions are given for some examples in order to show its applicability and efficiency.
