Oscillatory Solutions for Second-Order Difference Equations in Hilbert Spaces
Advances in Difference Equations volume 2007, Article number: 086925 (2007)
We consider the difference equation , , in the context of a Hilbert space. In this setting, we propose a concept of oscillation with respect to a direction and give sufficient conditions so that all its solutions be directionally oscillatory, as well as conditions which guarantee the existence of directionally positive monotone increasing solutions.
