Oscillation of Higher-Order Neutral-Type Periodic Differential Equations with Distributed Arguments
Journal of Inequalities and Applications volume 2007, Article number: 098423 (2007)
We derive oscillation criteria for general-type neutral differential equations,, where,,,,, and are real numbers, the functions and are nondecreasing in for each fixed, and is periodic and continuous with respect to for each fixed. In certain special cases, the results obtained generalize and improve some existing ones in the literature.
