The author primarily considers the oscillation properties of the third order nonlinear differential equation
where , and are positive real-valued continuous functions, is the quotient of odd positive integers and it holds
Using the Riccati transformation techniques, they establish some new sufficient conditions which ensure that the solution of the above equation is oscillatory or converges to zero. The obtained results extend the results known in the literature for . They also establish conditions of Kamenev-type and Philos-type for desired asymptotic behavior of the considered equation. Finally, the authors give some interesting examples to illustrate their main results.
