In this article, a technique namely Tanh method is applied to obtain some traveling wave solutions for Kupershmidt equation, and by using LADM we obtain an approximate solution to timefractional Kupershmidt equation.

A comparison between the traveling wave solution (exact solution) and the approximate one of equation under study, indicate that Laplace Adomian Decomposition Method (LADM) is highly accurate and can be considered a very useful and valuable method.
