The use of He's variational iteration method for solving the telegraph and fractional telegraph equations



In this paper 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. Copyright © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
