about

This book reviews material from more than three hundred publications on the oscillation theory of difference and functional differential equations of various types. For difference equations, a large number of new concepts are explained and supported by interesting theoretical developments. For differential equations, simplified versions of several new integral criteria for oscillations are presented. Proofs which illustrate the various strategies and ideas involved are given. This book should be a stimulus to the further development of the theory. Audience: This work will be of interest to mathematicians and graduate students in the disciplines of theoretical and applied mathematics.
