On the asymptotic behavior at infinity of solutions to quasi-linear differential equations. (English) Zbl 1224.34098
Summary: Sufficient conditions are formulated for the existence of non-oscillatory solutions to the equation \[ y^{(n)}+\sum _{j=0}^{n-1}a_{j}(x)y^{(j)}+p(x)| y| ^{k} \operatorname {sgn} y =0 \] with \( n\geq 1\), real (not necessarily natural) \(k>1\), and continuous functions \(p\) and \(a_{j}\) defined in a neighborhood of \(+\infty \). For this equation, with positive potential \(p\), a criterion is formulated for the existence of non-oscillatory solutions with non-zero limit at infinity. In the case of even order, a criterion is obtained for all solutions of this equation at infinity to be oscillatory. Sufficient conditions are obtained for the existence of a solution to this equation which is equivalent to a polynomial.
