The reliable treatment of homotopy perturbation method (HPM) is applied to solve the Klein-Gordon partial differential equation of arbitrary (fractional) orders. This algorithm overcomes the difficulty that arises in calculating complicated integrals when solving nonlinear equations. Some numerical examples are presented to illustrate the efficiency of this technique.
