Oscillatory Behavior of Second Order Neutral Dierence Equations with Mixed Neutral Term
In this paper, we study the oscillatory behavior of solution of second order neutral dierence equation with mixed neutral term of the form
(an(zn)) + qnx(n) = 0; n 2 N0; where zn = xn + bnxnô€€€l + cnxn+k and 1P
= 1. We obtain some new oscilla-tion criteria for second order neutral dierence equation. Examples are presented to illustrate the main results.
