Oscillation of third-order nonlinear differential equations. (English) Zbl 1209.34042

Summary: The objective of this work is to study oscillatory and asymptotic properties of the third-order nonlinear delay differential equation
\[ [a(t)[x^{\prime \prime }(t)]^\gamma ]^{\prime} + q(t)f(x[\tau (t)])=0. \tag{E} \]
Applying suitable comparison theorems, we present new criteria for oscillation or certain asymptotic behaviors of nonoscillatory solutions of (E). The results obtained essentially improve and complement earlier ones.
