Qualitative Properties Solutions of Neutral Difference Equations

A neutral differential equation involves the highest order derivative of the unknown function with and without delays. Analogous to this, in the discrete case, a neutral difference equation involves the highest order difference of the unknown function with and without delays. Although, often neutral difference equations can be written as higher order difference equations, it is convenient to study the behavior of solutions of these equations directly. The main aim of this chapter is to present recently developed theory of oscillation and nonoscillation of neutral difference equations.
