This article studies the asymptotic behavior of positive solutions of the q-difference half-linear equation
where q>1, Φ(x)=|x|αsgn x, α >0, p:qN0 → (0,∞), r: qN0 → R, in the framework of q-regular variation. In particular, if r is eventually of one sign, p and |r| are q-regularly varying functions such that tα+1 r(t)/p(t) → 0, as t → ∞, we obtain asymptotic formulas for the q-regularly varying solutions. Moreover, when p(t)= 1 and r is an eventually positive or eventually negative function, we obtain an asymptotic formula of a q-slowly varying solution. Using generalized regularly varying sequences, we apply these results to the half-linear difference equation case. At the end, we illustrate the obtained results with examples.
