Abstract:
This article concerns the solvability of the higher-order
nonlinear neutral delay difference equation
$$
\Delta\Big(a_{kn}\dots\Delta\big(a_{2n}
\Delta(a_{1n}\Delta(x_n+b_nx_{n-d}))\big)\Big)
+\sum_{j=1}^s p_{jn}f_j(x_{n-r_{jn}})=q_n,
$$
where $n\geq n_0\ge0$, $d,k,j,s$ are positive integers,
$f_j:\mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{R}$ and $xf_j(x)\geq 0$ for $x\ne 0$.
Sufficient conditions for the existence of non-oscillatory solutions
are established by using Krasnoselskii fixed point theorem.
Five theorems are stated according to the range of
the sequence $\{b_n\}$.
