Abstract

We consider the half-linear second-order difference equation , , , where , are real-valued sequences. We associate with the above-mentioned equation a linear second-order difference equation and we show that oscillatory properties of the above-mentioned one can be investigated using properties of this associated linear equation. The main tool we use is a linearization technique applied to a certain Riccati-type difference equation corresponding to the above-mentioned one.
