Title: Half-linear dynamic equations with mixed derivatives
Authors: Ondrej Dosly (Masaryk Univ., Brno, Czech Republic)

Abstract:
We investigate oscillatory properties of the second
order half-linear dynamic equation on a time scale with mixed
derivatives
$$
(r(t)\Phi(x^{\Delta}))^\nabla+c(t)\Phi(x)=0,\quad
\Phi(x)=|x|^{p-2}x, \quad p>1.
$$
In particular, we establish the Roundabout theorem which relates
oscillatory properties of this equation to the solvability
of the associated Riccati-type dynamic equation and to the positivity
of the corresponding energy functional. This result is then used to
prove (non)oscillation criteria for the above equation.
