Nonhomogeneous Superlinear Diﬀerential Equations

Wan-Tong Li†, Sui Sun Cheng‡

Received 20 December 2002

Abstract

We show that subtle modifcations of the arguments in [1] can lead us to

an oscillation criterion for a higher order superlinear nonhomogeneous diﬀerential

equation which depends only on the behavior of the forcing function on a sequence

of intervals.

In [1], Agarwal and Grace derive an oscillation theorem for the n-th order nonho-

mogeneous superlinear diﬀerential equation

where n ≥ 1 and q, f ∈ C([t0 , ∞); R). Besides the assumption q(t) < 0 for t ≥ t0 , their

result also requires the global behavior of the function f on [t0 , ∞). By means of the

following subtle modifications, we will obtain an oscillation result that only requires

behaviors of q and f on a sequence of intervals.

Recall first that a solution of (1) is a function y : [Ty , ∞) → R for some Ty ≥ t0 ,

which has the property y ∈ C (n) [Ty , ∞) and satisfies (1). We restrict our attention

only to the nontrivial solution y(t) of (1), i.e., to the solution y(t) such that sup{|y(t)| :

t ≥ T } > 0 for all T ≥ Ty . A nontrivial solution of (1) is called oscillatory if it has

arbitrary large zeros.

Let D(a, b) be the set of all functions H in C (n) [a, b] such that H(t) > 0 for t ∈ (a, b)

and H (j) (a) = H (j) (b) = 0 for 0 ≤ j ≤ n − 1.

THEOREM 1. Suppose that for any T ≥ t0 , there exist T ≤ s < τ such that

q(t) < 0 on [s, τ ] and f (t) ≥ 0 for t ∈ [s, τ ]. If there exists H ∈ D(s, τ ) such that

PROOF. We will need the well known fact that if A and B are nonnegative and

β > 1, then Aβ + (β − 1)B β ≥ βAB β−1 and equality holds if and only if A = B. Now

suppose that y(t) is an eventually positive solution which is positive, say y(t) > 0 when

t ≥ T0 ≥ t0 for some T0 depending on the solution y(t). By assumption, we can choose

s, τ ≥ T0 so that f (t) ≥ 0 on the interval I = [s, τ ] with s < τ . On the interval I, we

multiply Eq.(1) by H(t) for t ≥ t0 and integrate from s to τ , we obtain

Now, since

] τ ] τ ] τ

H(t)y (n) (t)dt = − H (t)y (n−1) (t)dt = ... = (−1)n H (n) (t)y(t)dt,

s s s

Uτ Uτ

thus s H(t)y (n) (t)dt is equal to s H (n) (t)y(t)dt if n is even and when n is odd, it is

Uτ

equal to − s H (n) (t)y(t)dt. Hence

] τ ] τ ] τ

H(t)f (t)dt = H (t)y(t)dt − H(t) |q(t)| y β (t)dt, if n is even,

and

] τ ] τ ] τ

H(t)f (t)dt = − H (n) (t)y(t)dt − H(t) |q(t)| y β (t)dt, if n is odd.

s s s

But then

H(t)f (t)dt ≤ H (t) y(t)dt − H(t) |q(t)| y β (t)dt.

and

on [2kπ, 2kπ + π] for k = 0, 1, 2, ... . Let H(t) = sin t. Set s = 2kπ and τ = (2k + 1)π

where k is a suﬃciently large integer. Then

it is suﬃcient that

|q|1/2 > ≈ 0.90861...

π

Thus, when q < −(0.90861...)2 , Eq. (4) cannot have an eventually positive solution.

Similarly, the diﬀerential equation

2

x (t) + r |x(t)| x(t) = − sin t (5)

cannot have an eventually positive solution by taking H(t) = − sin t and s = (2k + 1)π

and τ = (2k + 2)π, and r < −(0.90861...)2 .

Since an eventaully positive solution of (4) is an eventually positive solution of (5),

thus when q < −(0.90861...)2 , every solution of (4) oscillates.

We remark that in eqaution (4), we may replace the constant q with a function q(t)

such that q(t) < 0 on each [2ki π, 2(k + 1)πi ], where {ki } is an unbounded subsequence

of {1, 2, 3, ...} .

W. T. Li and S. S. Cheng 61

We remark further that the results of Agarwal and Grace [1] cannot be applied to

Eq.(4), since

lim sup m (t − s)m sin tdt = lim sup (t − t0 )m cos t0 = +∞,

and ] t

1 −1

lim inf m (t − s)m sin tdt = lim inf (t − t0 )m cos t0 = −∞.

t→∞ t t0 t→∞ tm

Finally, we remark that the same arguments in the proof of Theorem 1 will enable

us to derive the following integral type condition: Let q ∈ C[a, b] such that q(t) < 0

for a < t < b and let y ∈ C (n) [a, b] such that y(t) > 0
