Keywords: Almost oscillation, second order,, neutral dierence equation.


In this paper, we present some new oscillation criteria for second order neutral type dierence equation of the form (an(zn)) + qnf(xn) = en; n n0 > 0; where zn = xn ô€€€pnxnô€€€l and is ratio of odd positive integers. Examples are provided to illustrate the results.
