In this work, an initial-boundary value problem with a non-classic condition for the one-dimensional wave equation is presented and the reduced differential transform method is applied to ascertain the solution of the problem. We will investigate a new kind of non-local boundary value problems in which are the solution of hyperbolic partial differential equations with a non-standard boundary specification. The advantage of this method is its simplicity in using, it solves the problem directly and straightforward without using perturbation, linearization, Adomian’s polynomial or any other transformation and gives the solution in the form of convergent power series with simply determinable components. Also, the convergence of the method is proved and seven examples are tested to shows the competency of our study.
