Abstract: An integral due to Sonine is used to obtain an expansion for special solutions $ W(x,t)$ of the Klein-Gordon equation. This expansion is used to estimate the $ {L_p}$ norms $ \left\Vert W( \cdot ,t)\right\Vert _p$ as $ t \to \infty $. These estimates yield results on the time decay of a fairly wide class of solutions to the Klein-Gordon equation.
