Keywords: Half-linear differential equations with delay, Oscillation criteria, Averaging function,


The oscillation criteria of different types of differential equations are often the topic of numerous scientific papers, because their application in nuclear physics, fluid mechanics, relativistic mechanics, the study of chemical reactions in the system and in general are large in science. In this paper, the oscillation criteria using averaging functions of the half-linear differential equation are generalized to the half-linear differential equation with delay, under the appropriate assumptions for the delay function. Suitable examples illustrate the application of set oscillation criteria.
