Comparison theorems for delay differential equations

Wadi Mahfoud

Vol. 83 (1979), No. 1, 187–197
Abstract

Comparison Theorems. This paper presents a technique for extending some oscillation results from ordinary to delay differential equations. According to the technique, if an oscillation result is known for the ordinary differential equation

x(n) + f(t,x) = 0,

the corresponding result for the delay differential equation

x(n)(t)+ f(t,x(q(t))) = 0

may be obtained by a simple change of variables.
