Constants in the oscillation theory of higher order Sturm-Liouville differential equations

Ondrej Dosly

We find the the exact value of a constant in some oscillation criteria for the higher order Sturm-Liouville differential equation
  (-1)^{n}(t^\alpha y^{(n)})^{(n)}=q(t)y .
We also study some general aspects in the oscillation theory of this equation.
