Oscillation criteria of second-order half-linear dynamic equations on time scales. (English) Zbl 1082.34032

The subject of the paper is oscillation of solutions of second-order delta differential equations of the type

(p(t)(x Δ (t)) γ ) Δ +q(t)x γ (t)=0(1)

on quite general time scales. Here, γ>1 is an odd positive integer and p,q are positive right-dense continuous functions. The function (1/p) 1/γ may be integrable (in the sense of time scale analysis) at + or not. Sufficient conditions for the oscillatory character of all non-trivial solutions of (1) are given in both cases. The main theorems are applicable, in particular, to half-linear difference equations and half-linear ordinary differential equations, unifying and extending previous results. At the end of the paper, some examples are discussed to illustrate the range of applicability of the main results.
