Abstract In this note, we establish some oscillation criteria for certain higherorder quasilinear neutral differential equation. These criteria improve those results in the literature. Some examples are given to illustrate the importance of our results. 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification34C10; 34K11. Keywords:Oscillation, neutral differential equation, higherorder, quasilinear
1. Introduction The neutral differential equations find numerous applications in natural science and technology. For example, they are frequently used for the study of distributed networks containing lossless transmission lines, see Hale [1]. In the past few years, many studies have been carried out on the oscillation and nonoscillation of solutions of various types of neutral functional differential equations. We refer the reader to the papers [222] and the references cited therein. In this work, we restrict our attention to the oscillation of higherorder quasilinear neutral differential equation of the form γ(n1)γ r(t) (x(t) +p(t)x(τ(t))) +q(t)x(σ(t)) = 0,n2(1:1)
Throughout this paper, we assume that:
(C1)g1 is the quotient of odd positive integers; (C2)pÎC ([t0,), [0,)); (C3)qÎC ([t0,), [0,)), andqis not eventually zero on any half line [t*,) for t*t0; 1 1 (C4)r,τ,sÎC ([t0,),),r(t) > 0,r(t)0, limt®τ(t) = limt®s(t) =,s 1 1 exists andsis continuously differentiable, wheresdenotes the inverse function ofs.
We consider only those solutionsxof equation (1.1) which satisfy sup {|x(t)| :tT} > 0 for allTt0. We assume that equation (1.1) possesses such a solution. As usual, a solution of equation (1.1) is called oscillatory if it has arbitrarily large zeros on [t0,); otherwise, it is called nonoscillatory. Equation (1.1) is said to be oscillatory if all its solutions are oscillatory.
