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
telegraph equation. The numerical solution is obtained for some special cases
so that demonstrate the validity of method.
