Sufficient conditions for oscillatory behaviour of a first order neutral difference equation with oscillating coefficients. (English) Zbl 1224.39018

Summary: We obtain sufficient conditions so that every solution of neutral functional difference equation

Δ(y n -p n y τ(n) )+q n G(y σ(n) )=f n

oscillates or tends to zero as n. Here, Δ is the forward difference operator given by Δx n =x n+1 -x n , and p n , q n , f n are the terms of oscillating infinite sequences; {τ n } and {σ n } are non-decreasing sequences, which are less than n and approaches as n approaches . This paper generalizes and improves some recent results.
