On oscillations of solutions and their derivatives in a nonlinear third- order differential equation. (English) Zbl 0711.34040

The author studies the differential equation \[ (p(t)(p(t)x')')'+4p(t)q(t)x'+2(p(t)q(t))'x=f(t,x,x',(p(t)x')'), \] where \(p,q\in C^ 0(J)\), \(pq\in C^ 1(J)\), \(f\in C^ 0(D)\), \(p(t)>0\) for \(t\in J\), \(J=[t_ 0,\infty)\), \(D=J\times {\mathbb{R}}^ 3.\)
He finds sufficient conditions for the oscillation of (right-maximal) solutions, or for the oscillation of the derivative of solutions, or for the oscillation of the second quasi derivative, \((px')'\), of solutions on an interval \([t_ x,\infty)\), respectively.
