In this paper, the non-linear local fractional Bratu-type equation is described by the local fractional derivative in a fractal space, and its variational formulation is successfully established according to semi-inverse transform method. Finally, we find the approximate analytical solution of the local fractional Bratu-type equation by using Adomina decomposition method.
