A classification scheme for nonoscillatory solutions of a higher order neutral difference equation
Advances in Difference Equations volume 2006, Article number: 047654 (2006)
Nonoscillatory solutions of a nonlinear neutral type higher order difference equations are classified by means of their asymptotic behaviors. By means of the Kranoselskii's fixed point theorem, existence criteria are then provided for justification of such classification.
