Multilayer structures of second-order linear differential equations of Euler type and their application to nonlinear oscillations
The purpose of this paper is to present new oscillation theorems and nonoscillation theorems for the nonlinear Euler differential equation $t^2 x″' + g (x) = 0$. Here we assume that $x g(x) > 0$ if $x \neq 0$, but we do not necessarily require that $g (x)$ be monotone increasing. The obtained results are best possible in a certain sense. To establish our results, we use Sturm’s comparison theorem for linear Euler differential equations and phase plane analysis for a nonlinear system of Liénard type.
