In this work, the solution of a boundary value problem is discussed via a
semi analytical method. The purpose of the present paper is to inspect the
application of the Adomian decomposition method for solving the Nagumo tele-
graph equation. The numerical solution is obtained for some special cases so
that demonstrate the validity of method.
