We study the asymptotic behavior of the semilinear Klein-Gordon equation with nonlinearity of fractional order. By the aid of a suitable generalization of the weighted Sobolev spaces we define the weighted Sobolev spaces on the upper branch of the unit hyperboloid. In these spaces of fractional order we obtain a weighted Sobolev embedding and a nonlinear estimate. Using these, we establish the decay estimate of the solution for large time provided the power of nonlinearity is greater than a critical value.
