where F(x) is a real-valued function defined for x> 0 and belonging to L(E, 1/E) for each E>0. A solution of (1.1) is a real-valued function y(x), absolutely continuous together with its first derivative, which satisfies the equation for almost all x, in particular at all points of continuity of F(x). We shall say that the equation is non-oscillatory in (a, oo), a>O, if no solution can change its sign more than once in the interval. Since the zeros of linearly independent solutions separate… Expand

Oscillation Criteria for Certain System of Non-Linear Ordinary Differential Equations
where α > 0 and p, g : R+ → R are locally Lebesgue integrable functions. By a solution of system (1) on the interval J ⊆ [0,+∞[ we understand a pair (u, v) of functions u, v : J → R, which areExpand

Classification of second order linear differential equations with respect to oscillation
where r E P[a, 03), r > 0, and q E C[a, co), are classified by the behavior of their real solutions, as oscillatory or nonoscillatory. In the first instance, one, and thereby every, solution vanishesExpand
Oscillation criteria for second-order damped nonlinear differential equations with p-Laplacian
Abstract This paper is concerned with the oscillation problem for the nonlinear differential equation with a damping term, ( ϕ p ( x ′ ) ) ′ + 2 ( p − 1 ) t ϕ p ( x ′ ) + a ( t ) g ( x ) = 0 , whereExpand

where f : [0, +∞) × R → R is a continuous function and ξ ∈ (0,∞). More precisely, we are looking for conditions yielding existence of positive solutions of (1.1), defined on the whole interval [0,Expand
Oscillation and nonoscillation of solutions of second order linear differential equations with integrable coefficients
(1) x"+a(t)x = 0, t > 0, where a(t) is a locally integrable function of t. We call equation (1) oscillatory if all solutions of (1) have arbitrarily large zeros on [0, oo), otherwise, we say equationExpand

Asymptotic linearity of solutions of self-adjoint systems of second order differential equations
A prepared solution U is oscillatory if U(t,) is singular on some sequence t,, n = 1, 2, . . . . t, + co. Otherwise, U is nonoscillatory. In view of the Sturmtype separation theorem of Morse  theExpand

Hence, in considering zeros of solutions of (1), it can be assumed that (1) has the form (5). The term "solution" will always mean a non-trivial (#0) solution. This note will be concerned principallyExpand
