Oscillation of a logistic difference equation with several delays
Advances in Difference Equations volume 2006, Article number: 082143 (2006)
For a delay difference equation , g k (n) ≤ n, K > 0, a connection between oscillation properties of this equation and the corresponding linear equations is established. Explicit nonoscillation and oscillation conditions are presented. Positiveness of solutions is discussed.
