Nonlinear oscillation of second-order dynamic equations on time scales

Anderson, Douglas R.
Zafer, Ağacık
Interval oscillation criteria are established for a second-order nonlinear dynamic equation on time scales by utilizing a generalized Riccati technique and the Young inequality. The theory can be applied to second-order dynamic equations regardless of the choice of delta or nabla derivatives.


Asymptotic behavior of solutions of differential equations with piecewise constant arguments
Akhmet, Marat (Elsevier BV, 2008-09-01)
The main goal of the work is to obtain sufficient conditions for the asymptotic equivalence of a linear system of ordinary differential equations and a quasilinear system of differential equations with piecewise constant argument.
Dynamic programming for a Markov-switching jump-diffusion
Azevedo, N.; Pinheiro, D.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Elsevier BV, 2014-09-01)
We consider an optimal control problem with a deterministic finite horizon and state variable dynamics given by a Markov-switching jump-diffusion stochastic differential equation. Our main results extend the dynamic programming technique to this larger family of stochastic optimal control problems. More specifically, we provide a detailed proof of Bellman's optimality principle (or dynamic programming principle) and obtain the corresponding Hamilton-Jacobi-Belman equation, which turns out to be a partial in...
On oscillation and nonoscillation of second-order dynamic equations
Zafer, Ağacık (Elsevier BV, 2009-01-01)
New oscillation and nonoscillation criteria are established for second-order linear equations with damping and forcing terms. Examples are given to illustrate the results.
Forced oscillation of second-order nonlinear differential equations with positive and negative coefficients
ÖZBEKLER, ABDULLAH; Wong, J. S. W.; Zafer, Ağacık (Elsevier BV, 2011-07-01)
In this paper we give new oscillation criteria for forced super- and sub-linear differential equations by means of nonprincipal solutions.
