The paper assumes the following conditions hold:
• (H1)a(t) ∈C1([t0, ∞), (0, ∞)),q(t) ∈C([t0, ∞), [0, ∞)), and witht→ ∞,

• (H2)ƒ(x) ∈ C(R,R) is non-decreasing function , andwithx≠ 0;
• (H3)τ(t) ∈ C([t0, ∞),R),τ(t) ≤t, and
We call that x ( t ) ∈ C 1 ([ Tx , ∞), R) ( Tx t 0 ) is the solution of equation (1.1) if a ( t ) x ′( t ) ∈ C 1 ([ Tx , ∞). R) and x ( t ) satisfy (1.1) for t ∈ [ Tx , ∞). We suppose that every solution of (1.1) can be extended in [ t 0 , +∞). In any infinite interval [ T , +∞), we call x ( t ) is a regular solution of (1.1) if x ( t ) is not the eventually identically zero. The regular solution of (1.1) is said to be oscillatory in case it has arbitrarily large zero point; otherwise, the solution is said to be nonoscillatory.
For the equation (1.1), if a ( t ) ≡ 1, the equation (1.1) becomes

For the equation (1.2), if ƒ ( x ) = x , τ ( t ) = t , and q ( t ) = c ( t ), the equation (1.2) is simplified to be the second-order linear differential equation

There are some oscillation criteria for the equation (1.3), and one of the most important criteria is given by Wintner [1] as follows: If

the equation (1.3) is oscillatory. In 1978, Kamenev [2] improved the result of Wintner. He proved that if

where λ is a constant and λ > 1, the equation (1.3) is oscillatory.
In recent years, the oscillation theory and its application of differential equations have been greatly concerned. For example, you can see the recent monographs [3 - 5] . In particular, the result on oscillation criteria of second-order differential equation is very rich (see [6 - 16] ), but the most results obtained establish the sufficient condition of the oscillation for differential equations. Generally, the necessary and sufficient condition is difficult to obtain. This article discusses the oscillation for the bounded solution of the equation (1.1), and establishes two necessary and sufficient conditions of oscillation for the bounded solution of (1.1) by constructing a sequence of functions and using inequality technique.
2. Main results
Theorem 2.1. Suppose that ( H 1 )−( H 3 ) hold. Then the necessary and sufficient condition of the oscillation for every bounded solution of the equation (1.1) is

Proof . Sufficiency. Suppose that there is nonoscillatory bounded solution x ( t ) of the equation (1.1). Without loss of generality we assume that x ( t ) is eventually positive, then there exists t 1 ( t 1 t 0 ) such that as t t 1 ,

From the equation (1.1), we get

Thus, we can determine that

Actually, if there exists t 2 ( t 2 t 1 ) such that
PPT Slide
Lager Image
noticing a ( t ) x ′( t ) is nonincreasing, we can obtain
PPT Slide
Lager Image
as t t 2 , i.e.
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Integrating the above formula from t 2 to t , by ( H 1 ), we get that
PPT Slide
Lager Image
This contradicts with that x ( t ) is eventually positive, so (2.2) holds. Thus, for t t 1 , we have
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Then there exists t 3 ( t 3 t 2 ) and l ( l > 0) such that when t t 3 ,
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Substituting (2.3) into equation (1.1), we get
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Multiplying the both ends of the above formula by A ( t ) , we can get
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Because
PPT Slide
Lager Image
we can obtain
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Substituting the above into (2.5), we get
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Integrating the above formula from t 3 to t , we obtain
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Because x ( t ) is increasing and bounded, there exists C ( C > 0) such that
PPT Slide
Lager Image
This contradicts with the condition (2.1). The proof of sufficient section is completed.

Thus, by mathematical induction, for any positive integer k , we get

Therefore, the limit of the sequence of functions { xk ( t )} exists, i.e.

and 1 ≤ x ( t ) ≤ 2, t τ ( T ): Applying Lebesgue control convergence theorem to (2.6), we can get

Lager Image
Derivation of the both sides of the above formula and multiplying them by a ( t ), we get that for t > T

Continually after derivation of the both sides of the above formula, we get

It is easy to see that x ( t ) is an eventually positive bounded solution of (1.1), which is contradictory to that every bounded solution of the equation (1.1) is oscillatory. The proof is completed.
Remark 2.1. For linear case of (1.1) (i.e. ƒ ( x ) = x ), oscillation criterion relative to Theorem 2.1 has been obtained in Corollary 2 in [17] .
By Theorem 2.1, we can obtain for equation (1.2)
Corollary 2.2. Suppose that ( H 1 )−( H 3 ) hold. Then every bounded solution of equation (1.2) is oscillatory if and only if

Corollary 2.3. Assume that ( H 1 )−( H 3 ) hold. Then every bounded solution of (1.1) is oscillatory if and only if
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Proof . Sufficiency. Suppose that there is nonoscillatory bounded solution x ( t ) of the equation (1.1). Without loss of generality, we assume that x ( t ) is eventually positive, then there exists t 1 ( t 1 t 0 ) such that

for t t 1 . Using arguments similar to ones in the proof of Theorem 2.1, we can get (2.4), i.e.
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Integrating the above from t to t + v , we get
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Noticing (2.2) and letting v → ∞, we get that
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Integrating the above from T ( T t 2 ) to t ( t T ), it follows
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Let t → ∞ to acquire the limits of both sides of the above. Because x ( t ) is bounded and increasing, it is easy to get
PPT Slide
Lager Image
This is contradictory to the condition (2.8). The proof of sufficiency is completed.
Necessity. Suppose that

and there exists T ( T t 0 ) such that
PPT Slide
Lager Image
for t T . Construct the sequence of functions and let
PPT Slide
Lager Image
k = 1, 2, · · · . Similarly to the proof of Theorem 2.1, by the mathematical induction for any positive integer k , we have
PPT Slide
Lager Image
So the limit of { xk ( t )} exists, i.e.
PPT Slide
Lager Image
and 1 ≤ x ( t ) ≤ 2, t τ ( T ): By Lebesgue control convergence theorem to (2.9), it follows that
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Derivation of the both sides of the above and multiplying them by a ( t ), we get that for t > T
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Continuing to take the derivatives of the both sides of the above, we can get
PPT Slide
Lager Image
Thus x ( t ) is an eventually positive bounded solution of (1.1), which is contradictory to that every bounded solution of the equation (1.1) is oscillatory. The proof is completed.
By Theorem 2.3, we can get for equation (1.2).
Corollary 2.4. Suppose that ( H 1 )−(< H 3 ) hold. Then every bounded solution of (1.2) is oscillatory if and only if

The conditions (H 1 )-(H 3 ), (2.1) and (2.8) are clearly satisfied. Altogether, by Theorems 2.1 and 2.3, every bounded solution of the equation (2.11) is oscillatory. In fact, x ( t ) = cos ln t is a bounded oscillatory solution of the equation (2.11).
