In the current work, the telegraph equation in its general form and with an integral condition is investigated. Also the well-known homotopy analysis method (HAM) is applied and an interesting iterative algorithm is proposed for solving the problem in general form. Some numerical examples are given and compared with the exact solution to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Keywords: Telegraph Equation; Linear and Nonlinear Forcing; Nonlocal Boundary Condition; Series Solution; Integral Condition; Homotopy Analysis Method.
