**Academic Editor:**Ali H. Bhrawy

#### Abstract

We use the local fractional series expansion method to solve the Klein-Gordon equations on Cantor sets within the local fractional derivatives. The analytical solutions within the nondifferential terms are discussed. The obtained results show the simplicity and efficiency of the present technique with application to the problems of the liner differential equations on Cantor sets.

#### 1. Introduction

The Klein-Gordon equation [1] has been applied to mathematical physics such as solid-state physics, nonlinear optics, and quantum field theory. Some of the analytical methods for solving the Klein-Gordon equation include the variational iteration method [2], the tanh and the sine-cosine methods [3], the decomposition method [4], the differential transform method [5], and the homotopy-perturbation method [6].

Recently, the solutions for the fractional Klein-Gordon equation with the Caputo fractional derivative were considered in [7–9]. Golmankhaneh et al. used the homotopy-perturbation method to obtain solution for the fractional Klein-Gordon equation [7]. Kurulay [8] pointed out the solution for the fractional Klein-Gordon equation by using the homotopy analysis method. Gepreel and Mohamed [9] presented the solution for nonlinear space-time fractional Klein-Gordon equation by the homotopy analysis method.

When some domains cannot be described by smooth functions, both the classical approach and the fractional approach based on Riemann-Liouville (or Caputo) derivatives are unacceptable. In such cases, the local fractional calculus is an efficient technique for modeling these physical problems [10–23]. Using the fractional complex transform method [20], one transforms the classical Klein-Gordon equation into the Klein-Gordon equation on Cantor sets in the following form: subject to the initial value conditions: where the operator is the local fractional derivative operator, which is defined by [16–23] with and and are the local fractional continuous functions and are the mixed terms of nonlinear and liner functions.

In view of (1)-(2), the linear Klein-Gordon equation on Cantor sets: subject to the initial value conditions: is under consideration, where and are local fractional continuous functions.

On the other hand, the local fractional series expansion method was applied to solve the wave and diffusion equations on Cantor sets [21], the local fractional Schrödinger equation in the one-dimensional Cantorian system [22], and the local fractional Helmholtz equation [23]. In this paper, our aim is to investigate a new application of this technology to solve the linear Klein-Gordon equations on Cantor sets. The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, the idea of local fractional series expansion method is given. In Section 3, the solutions for linear Klein-Gordon equations on Cantor sets are presented. Finally, Section 4 is the conclusions.

#### 2. The Local Fractional Series Expansion Method

In order to illustrate the idea of the local fractional series expansion method [21–23], we consider the local fractional differential operator equation in the following form: where is the linear local fractional operator and is a local fractional continuous function.

From (6), the multiterm separated functions with respect to , read as where and are the local fractional continuous functions.

From (7), we have so that In view of (9), we obtain Making use of (10), we have so that Hence, from (12) we get We now rewrite (4) in the local fractional operator form as follows: subject to the initial value conditions: where the linear local fractional operator is defined as follows: Hence, (16) is a special case of (6) and it is used with the linear Klein-Gordon equations on Cantor sets in next section.
